This General Motors personnel expert is searching out bright young talent. 
He and others like him are charged with the important task of selecting the 
best prospects from among thousands of qualified people for jobs in industry. 
He conducts interviews at dozens of colleges every year. 

His job calls for an analytical and understanding mind. He is very careful 
to get all the facts before making a decision. He looks into the background of 
each student — scholarship, mental attitude, previous work experience, health 
and scope of interests. Often the difference between the merely competent 
person and the future leader can be reduced to a matter of desire. It takes 
expert judgment to spot the real thing. 

Getting its share of outstanding young men each year is vital to General 
Motors' future. And so, naturally, are the "talent scouts" who find them for us. 
They deserve much of the credit for the continuing success of the GM team. 


Making Better Things For You 


to the Editors: 

Having spent a quiet hour this 
evening with the December issue . . . 
I consider it the best within my 
memory, which goes back pretty far. 

If I should choose any article over 
others it would be "Reason Against 
Racism." The Bassett Case was of 
rather fresh memory when I came to 
the campus in 1908 and over the 
years I heard and have read much 
about it. This well researched and 
interestingly written article is the 
best treatment I have seen. Duke 
needs more of this sort of writing 
about its past, and properly in the 
Register from time to time. 

"A Charitable Man" began well 
but I need to read the last of it more 
thoughtfully to get all the theological 
implications. And as for "Art in 
Motion," the photography was excel- 
lent. Even the Alumni Gazette takes 
on new life and interest with its 
photographs and featured stories.

This is to say "Thank you" for 
your outstanding article "Reason 
Against Racism" in the current Reg- 
ister. It was an excellent and "char- 
itable" handling of one of the most 
critical issues of our day. You did 
more than this. You re-created, at 
least in the mind and heart of one 
84-year-old Trinity boy, all the won- 
der and enthusiasm of that early day 
when Trinity was just beginning to 
find herself. ("Bliss was it in that 
dawn to be alive!"). 

Your account of the meeting of the 
trustees was of especial interest to 
me. For I had heard at first hand 
nearly all of the proceedings of the 
meeting and made a record of them 

in my diary. The faculty was eaves- 
dropping on the meeting from with- 
in the office, while the students were 
doing the same from the hallway. 
(There was to be no stenographic 
report of the meeting.) The students 
built a pyramid of tables and chairs 
so that they could see over the door- 
ways into the Old Library room where 
the meeting was in progress. I went 
down into the basement (Egypt) and 
climbed up on a huge sill and lay 
there with my ear just beneath the 
floor of the room where the meeting 
was being held. 

A few minutes after 3:00 a.m. I 
heard the roll call and vote and 
knew that Trinity and my beloved 
history teacher were safe. 

It was the businessman contingent 
on the board that saved us. The 
preachers were against us. They said 
they dared not go home if Dr. Bas- 
sett were retained, and face the pop- 
ular clamor of their members. The 
politicians were against us. United 
States Senator Simmons made the 
leading speech against Dr. Bassett. 
He made a very adroit speech declar- 
ing that Dr. Bassett was advocating 
ideas that struck at the foundation 
of our Saxon Civilization. 

I had only one regret with regard 
to your fine article: that you did not 
include verbatim the great speech of 
Mr. James H. Southgate, a torrent 
of eloquence that I felt shaking the 
massive timbers around my head as 
I lay there in the dark and rejoiced 
for Trinity. 

Thanks again for your article!

P. S. I enjoyed Dr. Richey's arti- 
cle. You boys back there at the foun- 
tainhead don't know how much these 
things mean to us here in the 
"woods," and, as Chaucer puts it, 
"Foryete in solitarie wildernesse." 

This is to thank you for the excel- 
lence of the December issue of the 
Duke Alumni Register. 

It is good to have deeper insight 
into one's heritage, as is given in 

700 times a day 

a defective child is born to 
bitter disappointment and a 
woman's tears. 

It is the tragic truth that one 
in every ten American fam- 
ilies experiences the suffering 
caused by the birth of a defec- 
tive child. 

Working together through the 
March of Dimes we can do so 
much to stop this heartbreak 
and anguish. You can help. 
Give to the March of Dimes 
for research and treatment. 



If you've said this, or even thought it, you're like many 
men. Their first years have been marked with success and 
advancement, but now they feel as if they are on a 
"plateau" in their career progress. They find themselves 
vaguely dissatisfied ■ — unchallenged — and see them- 
selves not fulfilling as large a role as they KNOW they 
can fill. 

Men like these frequently feel that they would do much 
better if they were working for themselves. But they are 
often unsure how to make the break into such work. 

If you feel this way, consider a future working for 
yourself and Mass Mutual. 

It is a career where you meet interesting people, earn a 
good income and reap financial benefit in direct propor- 
tion to effort expended. And above all, it offers a feeling 
of real accomplishment that comes with knowing that 

you have contributed to the future happiness and well- 
being of many, many people. 

To find out what the opportunities would be for YOU 
just write a personal letter about yourself to Charles H. 
Schaaff, President, Massachusetts Mutual, at Springfield, 
Mass. (Be sure to tell him in what area of the United 
States you would most like to live and work.) It could 
be the most important letter you ever wrote!

Mr. Jackson's story in the Duke 
Alumni Register December 1964, 
"Reason Against Racism" was ex- 
tremely interesting. 

It seems to me that men who at- 
tack one liberty of man will usually 
attack another and that academic 
freedom and the right of free speech 
generally are intimately involved with 
civil rights of Negroes and other 
minorities. Undermine one and you 
undermine all. 

It was also interesting to note that 
Dr. King had spoken recently at 
Duke and that he had been so well 

I look to the people of North 
Carolina and to those at Duke in 
particular to lead in the paths of 
progress in the South. There is still 
plenty of work to do.

The Passing 

of the 
Solid South 

By Allan P. Sindler 

The South' s political position seems 
to be changing, but just what do these 
changes meanf 

The 1964 presidential contest dramatically un- 
derscored the changed position of the South, 
defined as the eleven states of the former Con- 
federacy, in presidential politics. It was the Republican 
standard-bearer who won his nomination in part on 
his reputed ability to attract much of the Southern 
white vote. And it was the Republican party which 
subsequently carried the five states of the Deep South, 
and which perhaps would have carried the rest of the 
South except North Carolina had it not been for the 
impressively cohesive Negro vote for President John- 
son. These seemingly topsy-turvy events index changes 
in both the Republican party and the Southern region, 
changes of major importance to any assessment of the 
political future of either. My comments here focus, 
however, not on the problems currently besetting the 
national minority party of Republicans, but rather on 
the passing of the Democratic Solid South in presiden- 
tial elections. 

In politics no less than in love, disenchantment 
must be preceded by enchantment. Contemporary 
Southern disaffection with the national Democratic 
party can be properly understood, therefore, only in 
the longer time-frame of history. We may begin by 
providing a rough measure of how unsolid politically 
the South has become. The following table, to which 

Dr. Sindler is associate professor and director of grad- 
uate studies in the department of political science. His 
publications deal with American party politics, with a 
special concern for the South, the most recent of which 
is, as editor, Change in the Contemporary South {Duke 
University Press, 1963). This article, while drawing 
upon his previous published research, has been specially 
written for the Duke Alumni Register. 

frequent references will be made, notes all the instances 
of defection by Southern states from support of Demo- 
cratic presidential candidates in this century. (It should 
also be kept in mind, of course, that in recent elections 
presidential Republicanism has increased markedly in 
all Southern states, including those in which electoral 
votes continued to be cast for the Democratic ticket.)

R — Republican. SR — States' Rights (Dixiecrat). U — Unpledged 
or "free" electors, who voted for Senator Harry F. Byrd 
(Dem., Va.). 

The post-Reconstruction South, unified by its re- 
gional concern to subordinate the Negro and by other 
common characteristics differentiating it from the rest 
of the nation, became so thoroughly wedded to the 
Democratic party — nationally and locally — as to war- 
rant the description of "the Solid South." As the large 
sectional stronghold of the minority national party 
(before 1932), the region's influence within the Demo- 
crats was high, both within the Congress and national 
nominating conventions. This warm and mutually 
supportive relationship between region and party came 
under increasing stress as the Democrats sought and 
took on new allies in their successful attempt to dis- 
place the Republicans as the national majority party. 

Severe regional tensions appeared, instructively, in 
the 1928 election, in which the Democrats consciously 
sought to cut into the Republican loyalties of Northern 
urban-industrial-ethnic voters by running "one of their 
own kind" for president. Those characteristics of Al 
Smith which were of special appeal to many non-South- 
ern voters constituted special disabilities to many South- 
ern white voters — an inverse relationship which has 
persisted in subsequent elections and which ultimately 
provoked durable party defection in the South. In an- 
other sense, however, the political strains injected by 
Al Smith's candidacy could not be considered as reli- 
able indicators of continuing regional rebellion. It was 
not likely, after all, that the Democrats would insist 
on putting forward presidential candidates of the Cath- 

olic faith or that the liquor issue would long remain 
relevant to national politics. The South's desertions in 
1928, in short, could be viewed as a transitory reaction 
to transitory events. More crucially, as Table 1 notes, 
only the rim-South states defected, while the Deep 
South states — those with the greatest stake in the 
maintenance of white supremacy — remained loyal to 
the national Democrats. 

Contemporary Southern rebellion against the Dem- 
ocrats thus stems more directly from events 
since 1932, and involves the states of the Deep 
South no less than those of the rim South. In essence, 
the new majority-party coalition, forged by Roosevelt 
and Truman and expressed by them in their respective 
New Deal and Fair Deal policies, gave the national 
Democrats a following and a program increasingly 
repugnant to segments of the white South. The restive- 
ness of Southern conservatives thrived in the wake of 
the liberal labor, welfare, and economic legislation ad- 
vocated and enacted, and the sensibilities of many white 
Southerners, irrespective of class, were offended by the 
nature of the new "partners" admitted to power within 
the national party: organized labor, big-city machines 
and bosses, ethnic and racial minorities, including the 
Negro. More broadly, the changing ideological temper 
of the times with respect to racial and economic doc- 
trines, as exemplified in various decisions of the United 
States Supreme Court from the late 1930's and on, ran 
counter to the views of such Southerners. 

The capacity of the South to express its rising dis- 
satisfactions was sharply circumscribed by the high 
popularity of FDR with the national electorate. Con- 
sider the fact, for example, that had the electoral votes 
of all eleven Southern states gone to the Republican 
candidate, FDR would still have won handily in his 
elections from 1932 through 1944. In light of this polit- 
ical reality, the variety of Southern resistance that did 
occur provides impressive evidence of accumulating 
resentments. Within the national conventions, for 
example, portions of the South comprised the bulk of 
opposition to repeal of the two-thirds nominating rule 
(1936), to the vice-presidential nomination of Henry 
A. Wallace (1940), and to the renomination of FDR 
for a fourth term (1944). Ironically in view of later 
events, it was the pressure of Southern delegates, in 
combination with other allies, which brought about the 
rejection of Wallace for the vice-presidential spot in 
1944 and the nomination of Harry S. Truman for that 
position. In presidential elections, third-party slates 
of electors were entered in deliberate opposition to 
FDR in Texas in 1936, in South Carolina in 1940, and 
in both those states as well as in Mississippi in 1944. 
Within the Congress, not only did Southern legislators 

become the most ardent regional defenders of the 
Supreme Court against FDR's "court-packing" plan in 
1937, but many of them undertook a loose working 
alliance with Republican legislators in joint opposition 
to various welfare measures of the later New Deal. 

It was not until 1948, then, that circumstances pro- 
voked and permitted Southern dissidents to initiate a 
large-scale regional revolt against the national Demo- 
cratic party. On the one hand, the race issue — the 
sensitive root nerve of the region — erupted in the wake 
of President Truman's endorsement of a federal civil 
rights program on behalf of the Negroes. And, on the 
other, Truman was a political target apparently more 
vulnerable than FDR had ever been. Thus emerged 
the States' Rights or Dixiecrat revolt of 1948, which 
ushered in the persistent Southern defection reported 
on in Table 1, and which has led to the transition 
period of regional political change in which we cur- 
rently find ourselves. 

Even a casual inspection of Table 1 suggests that 
the South has not been of one piece in its defection pat- 
terns, as to which states defected when, and to what 
alternative party. The picture is further complicated, 
especially with reference to distinguishing between 
temporary and enduring defection, by the fact that each 
of the presidential elections from 1948 on was some- 
what unique in terms of a special factor: the arousal of 
white and Negro race anxieties (1948 and 1964), the 
candidacy of a vastly popular war hero (1952 and 
1956), and the candidacy of a Catholic Democrat 
(1960). Bearing these complications in mind, the at- 
tempt is here made to comment only upon some of the 
larger directions of change. 

Southern defection from the national Democrats 
reflects, broadly speaking, economic or racial fears of 
whites, or a combination of both which is very easy 
to occur because federal protection of Negro rights 
necessarily involves an extension of national govern- 
mental authority and (as the white Southerner of this 
persuasion sees it) an abridgement of private rights. 
Although it would be too simple an explanation to 
attribute the rim-South's turn away from the Demo- 
crats to economic motivations, and that of the Deep 
South to race concerns, the distinction between the two 
motives is a useful one by which to organize the dis- 
cussion of regional politics which follows. 


he race issue is so salient to the South, especial- 
ly to the Deep South, as to have the capacity 
to alter major-party alignments, were it to be 
given the chance to do so. The reaction of the Deep 
South to the 1964 election turned to a considerable 
degree on a highly sensitized reading of the candidates' 
positions on race, in the context of an intense white 

resentment of previous pro-Negro actions of the Ken- 
nedy-Johnson Administrations. Notwithstanding this 
behavior in 1964, it is doubtful that the Republicans 
(or the Democrats) could afford in the future to take 
a position on the Negro pleasing enough to the Deep 
South without thereby alienating more critical voter 
support elsewhere in the nation, as well as the rising 
Negro vote within the South itself. This is but another 
way of saying that the Deep South's racial position in- 
dexes its increasing isolation from the national con- 
sensus on Negro rights, and consequently that if it 
desires to pursue a race-based politics in presidential 
elections, it can do so only through extremist third- 
party activity, in the manner of the Dixiecrats of 1948 
and the "free" elector movement of 1960. Since the 
American political system profoundly discourages 
stable third-party development, there can be no long- 
range future in the latter strategy, although the in- 
tensity of race feeling may well lead to a re-eruption 
of third-party movements in the near future. Over 
the longer pull, the Deep South must ultimately return 
to making its choice between the two major parties, 
just as it must ultimately acquiesce in the predominant 
national view of the race question. When this occurs, 
Deep South whites may be expected to divide their 
votes between the major-party aspirants for the same 
sorts of reasons, such as economic concerns, habitual 
partisanship, etc., motivating other Americans around 
the country. 

In contrast, economic-induced defection from Dem- 
ocratic presidential candidates should be both more 
predictable and durable, and serves to index the South's 
belated return — once freed from its fixations on the 
race problem — to the mainstream of American politics. 
Economic disaffection antedated Truman's incumbency, 
as earlier noted, and though it was doubtless spurred by 
racial and religious anxieties and the popular appeal 
of Ike in subsequent elections, it was by no means de- 
pendent upon those happenings. In a region where not 
too long ago it was socially discreditable (except in 
the mountain areas) to vote Republican, it has now 
become quite respectable — indeed, even mandatory in 
some Southern quarters — to express one's conservatism 
and soundness by open support of the Republican presi- 
dential nominee. This trend, which attests to the passing 
of the Solid South, can only be sustained and gradually 
enlarged as the South continues to advance and di- 
versify economically. 

The new strength of presidential Republicanism is 
not uniform, of course, throughout the region. The 
urbanized, industrialized, and retirement areas have 
led the way, and on a state basis, as Table 1 sug- 
gests, the rim-South states may now be considered to 
be competitive in presidential politics. Overall, how- 


ever, it is probable that a majority of the Southern vote 
will remain Democratic in the absence of Republican 
ability to capitalize upon such special factors as race 
fears, religious animosities, or extraordinary candidate 
appeal. As impressive as the sectional upsurge of presi- 
dential Republicanism has been, it should not be for- 
gotten that the pull of party loyalty, the relative back- 
wardness of the regional economy, and the expanding 
and bloc character of the Negro vote — to mention only 
these few of many factors — should serve to persuade a 
majority of Southerners to continue to favor Demo- 
cratic presidential candidates. 

The vigor of presidential Republicanism must to 
some degree promote the rejuvenation of Republican 
strength in congressional and state-local politics of the 
region. As ambitious leaders seeking public office 
emerge and as more offices are contested for, the aa- 
gregate support given to sub-presidential Republican 
nominees and the vitality of party organization inevi- 
tably will increase. But, contrary to what many com- 
mentators suggest concerning the birth of two-partyism 
in the South, the overall patterns of sub-presidential Re- 
publicanism are likely to be considerably weaker than 
those evident in presidential politics. 

The economic dissatisfactions that have promoted 
the upturn of presidential Republicanism find in sub- 
presidential politics no counterpart incentive to defect 
from the Democratic party. If the dominant Demo- 
cratic factions in state-local politics were usually liber- 
al, or if most Southern legislators in the Congress were 
liberal, then regional conservatives would have reason 
to consider leaving their historic party — but manifestly 
such is not the case. In the absence of such conditions, 
conservatives are content to combine a loyalty to the 
Democratic party at sub-presidential levels with deser- 
tion from that party in presidential contests, thereby 
producing a hybrid voting behavior which may be 
termed "Republicrat." Since these Republicrats num- 
ber in the hundreds of thousands, and they are satisfied 
— as well they might be — in having the best of both 
worlds through their selective partisanship, their pres- 
ence and behavior depress the build-up of Republican- 
ism at sub-presidential levels in the region. 

What are the possibilities of compelling Republi- 
crats to give up their partisan straddle and take on a 
consistent partisanship all the way, whether fully Re- 
publican or fully Democratic? So far as rank-and-file 
voters are concerned, there are no effective sanctions 
applicable, and hence their Republicrat behavior can 
persist. But Democratic party and governmental lead- 
ers, whose actions are so crucial to the development of 
Republican strength at presidential as well as sub- 
presidential levels, are more vulnerable to sanctions. 
How many Democratic leaders would continue publicly 

to support Republican presidential nominees if that 
led to such punishments as denial of seating at national 
conventions, emergence of a rival "loyalist" faction 
supported by the President, curtailment of "pork bar- 
rel" and other federal patronage benefits, or displace- 
ment from key committee posts within the Congress? 

The argument, in brief, is that most Southern 
Democratic leaders wanting to advocate de- 
fection in presidential elections will do so by 
being Republicrats, and not by turning Republican, 
because of the obvious advantages to be gained by 
remaining Democratic in sub-presidential politics. (The 
recent party shift of Senator Strom Thurmond of South 
Carolina, precisely because of its exceptionality and un- 
typicality, provides supporting evidence for this view.) 
Their ability to act on a Republicrat strategy will de- 
pend, however, on whether they can continue to get 
away with it. If punitive sanctions were readily avail- 
able for imposition, then these would-be defectors 
would have to forego their Republicrat stance and take 
on the same party coloration for all levels of elections. 
(This, together with other reasons, helps account for 
the fact that few Southern congressmen choose to be- 
come leading defectors in presidential politics; defection 
is led mostly by state and local Democrats.) And, in 
view of the benefits to a Southerner in retaining the 
Democratic label, both in state-local and in congres- 
sional politics, most leaders would respond to the neces- 
sity of abandoning their Republicrat position by return- 
ing to a Democratic, and not taking on Republican, 
full identification. 

The thrust of these comments thus suggests, iron- 
ically, that while the maintenance of Republicrat posi- 
tions by Democratic leaders impedes the development 
of Southern Republicanism at sub-presidential levels, 
efforts to force such leaders into more consistent parti- 
sanship will probably result in strengthening their Dem- 
ocratic affiliation, and consequently in reducing Re- 
publican backing at both presidential and sub-presi- 
dential levels. Of course if it no longer yielded 
advantages to a conservative Southern congressman or 
state leader to hold on to the Democratic label, then 
his defection could more naturally take the direction 
of Republican affiliation. But, as we have seen, this 
would require such conditions as a general displace- 
ment by Northern Democratic congressmen of South- 
erners from posts of committee power or the stable 
control of state politics by truly liberal Democratic 
factions. In the absence of those conditions, the Re- 
publicans will have to settle for the foreseeable future 
for a level of Southern support in presidential elections 
which will not be closely matched in congressional and 
state-local politics.

With the arrival of the new research vessel R/S Eastward at the Marine Labo- 
ratory the University s unique cooperative oceanographic program gets underway. 

The leaden sky hung low, seeming to press the 
flat coastal land even flatter. Beyond the bare 
and wind-swept dunes the swelling sea, fur- 
rowed with rolling waves, moved relentlessly toward 
the land. A strong, gusty wind sent whitecaps scamp- 
ering along the crests, spinning a fine salt spray 
through the air. Gulls soared and dipped momentarily 
out of sight, calling raucously to their mates to join the 

Inside the banks, the sheltered waters of the sound 
were relatively calm as they washed against the shore 
of Pivers Island, home of Duke's Marine Laboratory, 
near the old fishing village of Beaufort on the North 
Carolina coast. In the lee of the island, snugly moored 
to her pier, lay the R/S Eastward, the new research 
vessel of the Laboratory and the main cog in the 
University's cooperative oceanographic research and 
training program. Even in the gray light of early 
morning she shone proudly. The big blue "D" on 
her stack, her blue and white paint, her glistening 
bright-work, attested to her recent arrival from the 
Wisconsin shipyard where she was built. 

Her 15-man crew, all native watermen from around 
Beaufort, were busy under the command of Captain 
David Beveridge getting ready to sail at eight o'clock. 
They stowed gear below decks and tidied up all 117.5 
feet of the Eastward from stem to stern. All deck 
gear, including a large Campbell grab for taking bot- 
tom samples and a big sample washing hopper, was 
carefully lashed down. And it w&s obvious from the 
way they scanned the weather they expected some 
rough going on the open sea. 

Already on the dock was Dr. Robert J. Menzies, 
director of the cooperative oceanographic program and 

chief scientist of the Eastward. Soon he was joined 
by Dr. Mary Alice McWhinnie and her party from 
DePaul University in Chicago. No stranger to boats,

Crewmen rig a plankton net over the side to take 
samples, as curious seagulls gather to observe. 

Dr. McWhinnie (a highly respected scientist in her 
own right) was the first female to do research in 
Antarctic waters. She had brought with her a group 
of ten research associates and graduate students for 
two training cruises aboard the Eastward — though at 
the moment she was shy three students who had mis- 
takenly gone to Beaufort (pronounced Bew'-fut), 
South Carolina instead of Beaufort (pronounced BoW- 
fort), North Carolina. 

While the DePaul students stowed their gear and 
eagerly began exploring the Eastward, Dr. McWhinnie 
and Dr. Menzies discussed the day's trip. It would 
be an eight-hour training cruise to enable the students 
to familiarize themselves with certain techniques of 
oceanographic research. They would be doing sev- 
eral things — taking samples of live fish, of plankton, 
and of the ocean's bottom in addition to water tem- 
perature and salinity readings. 

It was a unique opportunity for them to gain 
experience, for the Duke cooperative program is the 
first of its kind in biological oceanography. Under 
the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation, 
its goal is to provide research and training facilities not 
only to Duke but to other cooperating universities as 
well. The ownership and operation of the Eastward 
rests with Duke, but approval of its use is determined 
by a five-man committee of non-Duke scientists who 
review all applications. The schedule is made up 
annually and maximum use to the scientific commu- 
nity is a major objective. 

Thus far, in addition to Duke and DePaul, re- 
search and training cruises have been taken or sched- 
uled for such schools as City College of New York, 
Queens College, Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences, 
the Universities of Tennessee, North Carolina, Kansas, 
Georgia, North Carolina State and California. The 
program is proving an especial boon to land locked 

With each cruise there is a principle investigator 
who assumes full responsibility for his research proj- 
ect and trainees. The University provides the ship, 
captain and crew, and a chief scientist from the Marine 
Laboratory, who is available for advice and consulta- 
tion. Dr. Menzies, who is professor of zoology at 
Duke as well as director of the oceanographic pro- 
gram, was the chief scientist on this cruise. 

It was just about eight o'clock as the Eastward's 
640 horsepower deisel began to throb and the deck 
crew scurried to loose the heavy nylon hausers from 
the dock pilings. In a matter of minutes, Eastward 
gained way and headed out the channel toward a 
distant break in the low-lying dunes that marked the 
open sea. Meanwhile, the scientists from DePaul were 
exploring the wet laboratory on the main deck and 
the dry laboratory below. They were also examining 
the sonar equipment, one for taking soundings of 
botton typography and one for locating schools of 
fish, and the bathythermograph for taking continuous 
temperature recordings in profile to 20,000 feet. Al- 
together they were looking at a quarter million dollars 
worth of research equipment. 

Back in the galley the cooks had hot coffee and 
doughnuts for all hands, which sea-air-sharpened ap-

petites soon disposed of. It wasn't too soon either, 
for shortly the Eastward was plowing through heavy 
Atlantic swells that made eating and drinking difficult. 
"This is where we separate the men from the boys," 
said the second cook, Howard, a veteran of twenty 
years on the big commercial menhaden fishing boats. 
And he was right, as very soon several of the visitors 
began to suffer that ancient plague of those who go 
out in ships, seasickness. 

During the run to Cape Lookout, which took about 
two hours, Eastward proved her seaworthiness. Also, 
she has anti-roll tanks built into her hull which im- 
prove her stability. After a time the roller-coaster 
effect stopped as the ship entered the relatively quiet 
waters in the lee of the cape. 

As the engines slowed to idle and the anchor line 
payed out, the real work of the cruise began. Dr. 
McWhinnie soon showed herself an experienced hand 
as she organized her students into teams for various 
projects. Meanwhile the deck crew was busy rigging 
nets to take samples of fish and plankton. Soon the 
two large acquaria on the main deck were filled with 
a lively assortment of sea life. These two tanks, which 
stand against the foc'sle bulkhead are kept constantly 
filled to overflowing with fresh seawater which keeps 

them from sloshing. The specimens in those tanks 
would be kept until evening when, back in port, the 
scientists would study them in the wet laboratory. 

Work progressed at a lively pace and the research- 
ers rotated from one phase to another in order to 
gain experience. Crew members were kept busy 
rigging equipment and assisting in collecting samples. 
Lunch was eaten in shifts by all who had appetites and 
the work continued. On the main deck the large 
grab was rigged to take bottom samples for study. 
Plankton nets were swung from booms over the side, 
and nets for small fish rigged over the stern. Though 
anchored, Eastward was a busy ship. 

Then it came time to return to port, and few looked 
forward to the rough ride ahead. All gear was stowed 
and the anchor winch groaned away. Soon Eastward 
was in the open sea again and the small gimballed 
table in the wet laboratory was swinging dizzily about. 
It seemed a miracle that the beaker sitting on it did not 
crash to the deck. 

Up on the bridge the radio squawked the story of 
fishing boats riding out the blow with assistance from 
the Coast Guard, and news that one of them had sunk 
early that morning with the loss of a crewman. East- 
ward, however, with more freeboard was never in 


Eastward is a working ship that packs a maximum 
of sophisticated scientific equipment into a mini- 
mum of space to provide excellent opportunities for 
oceanographic research. In the above picture, Dr.

program at Duke, works with crewmen to rig a small- 
fish sample net over the stern, and {center) directs

trouble though the rolls got up to 30°. Nevertheless, 
all hands were happy to see Beaufort and to relax on 
dry land. 

In port, Eastward remained a busy place as the 
DePaul group stayed aboard to examine the samples 
they had taken. They were also scheduled for a 24 
hour cruise after staying in port for a day. Then they 
would return to Chicago with new knowledge and 
insights into the realm of oceanography. 

Meanwhile, Eastward would not remain idle. 
Others would come for cruises of varying lengths (she 
is capable of going 21 days and covering up to 5,000 
miles), with most trips averaging a week or less. 

"In the national picture . . . this ship is to play a 
vital role," said Dr. Jack Spencer, at her launching. 
Dr. Spencer is program director for facilities and 
special programs for the National Science Foundation. 

"At the moment," he said, "capable scientists 
(marine biologists) . . . can almost be counted on 
the fingers of one hand. Duke University is going to 
be a moving force in overcoming this serious gap in 
the national manpower picture." 



A chronicle of important events and developments at Duke University 

International Studies 

For some time now, in recogni- 
tion of the increasing complexity 
of world events, the University has 
been directing a number of interna- 
tional studies programs. During this 
time Duke has gained distinction for 
its leadership and scholarship in such 
programs as the Commonwealth- 
Studies Center, South Asian Studies, 
Hispanic Studies, African Studies, In- 
ternational Training and Research in 
Professional Areas, and the History 
and Comparative Study of Ideas. 

Recently the University's efforts 
in these areas received a substantial 
boost with a grant of $900,000 from 
the Ford Foundation. The grant, 
which will extend over a five-year 
period, was one of three recently 
made by the Foundation specifically 
for international studies. The Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin was given $700,- 
000 and the University of Denver, 

In accepting the award, President 
Douglas M. Knight said: "The grant 
from the Ford Foundation comes at 
a time when Duke University is ex- 
panding and strengthening substan- 
tially its international program. This 
new financial assistance will make 
possible continuation of international 
activities for which Duke has obtained 
a high reputation, and also the un- 
dertaking of vital endeavors in ex- 
citing new areas. It is expected that 
this grant will have lasting meaning 
not only for many parts of this Uni- 
versity but also for the entire south- 
eastern region." 

While no firm allocation of the 
funds has yet been made to the 
various programs at Duke, Dr. Knight 
said about half will go to support 
faculty research and travel. The 
grant will be administered by the 
Office of the Provost, and Dr. Crau- 
ford Goodwin will be chairman of 


a special advisory committee. As as- 
sistant provost, effective February 1, 
Dr. Goodwin will have special re- 
sponsibilities in the field of interna- 
tional studies. 

Ford Foundation officials also an- 
nounced other grants in support of 
international studies programs, in- 
cluding capital gifts of $12.5 millions 
to Harvard University and $10.9 mil- 
lions to Columbia University. 

Schools &? Scriptures 

Parents still troubled by the 1962 
Supreme Court decision banning 
Scripture reading in public schools 
got some reassurance recently from 
Duke's Dr. E. C. Bolmeier, a nation- 
ally-recognized expert on school law. 

Schools can legally substitute great- 
er emphasis on moral and spiritual 
values for religious instruction, said 
Dr. Bolmeier in addressing the an- 
nual meeting of the National Asso- 
ciation of Secondary-School Prin- 

"Any instruction or related activity 
in the public schools which smacks 
of sectarian influences, aids one or 
more religious sects, or prefers one 
religious doctrine or another is il- 
legal," Dr. Bolmeier declared. But, 
he said, schools can achieve religious 
objectives and still adhere to the law. 

Dr. Bolmeier, who is professor of 
education at the university and past 
president of the National Organiza- 
tion on Legal Problems of Education, 
went on to say: "A curriculum con- 
ceived in terms of moral and spiritual 
values will strive to improve and 
develop human personality, moral 
responsibility, devotion to truth, re- 
spect for excellence, moral equality, 
brotherhood, the pursuit of happiness, 
and spiritual enrichment for every 
school pupil." Moreover, "Such ob- 
jectives would have judicial support 
at all levels," he predicted. 

Boost for Missiles 

Missile launching systems may be 
getting a big boost from research 
now underway by Duke engineers, 
working in cooperation with U. S. 
Army Research engineers. 

The system is designed to make 
use of the great potential energy 
stored in the earth's atmosphere, say 
the engineers. Thus saving tons of 
propellant fuel and enabling missiles 
to carry heavier payloads. 

This research has already attracted 
a great deal of national interest 
among missile engineers as a result 
of two recently published articles. 

One, entitled "Environmental Mis- 
sile Launch Systems," by Donald J. 
Wood, appeared in the November 
1964 issue of Civil Engineering. Dr. 
Wood is assistant professor of civil 
engineering at the University and a 
consultant to the National Aero- 
nautics and Space Administration. 

Dr. Wood's article discusses three 
types of experimental "environmental 
engineering" missile boost systems be- 
ing investigated. The vacuum-air 
(most promising of the systems 
tested), water and constant accelera- 
tion water-air boosters. 

The second article, which appeared 
in the October 1964 Journal of Space- 
craft and Rockets, is a detailed treat- 
ment of the vacuum-air booster. It 
was written by Dr. Sumir Kumar, a 
visiting associate professor of civil 
engineering at Duke; James J. Mur- 
ray, director of engineering sciences 
at the Army Research Office; and 
J. R. N. Rajan, a civil engineering re- 
search assistant at the University. 

The authors point out that the 
vacuum-air boost system operates on 
energy derived from atmospheric 
pressure on the outside and near 
vacuum conditions created on the in- 
side of their unique "vertical missile 
launch tube." 

Much of the missile's launch weight 
(20-40%), now made up of expen- 
sive propellant fuels, they believe, 
could be saved through their system. 
By using atmospheric pressure in- 
stead of fuel as the initial driving 
force for launching missiles, the 
engineers expect to show significant 
savings in propellants and increase 
the payloads. 

The system is feasible for small 
and medium-sized missiles, and has 
multiple advantages for meteorolog- 
ical or small space-test missile 
launchings. In addition, the vacuum- 
air boost system provides a shelter 
for the missile prior to firing, reduces 
"surface wind sensitivity" at time of 
launch, and offers more effective dy- 
namic steering, the researchers say. 

There has been considerable specu- 
lation that Russian engineers may 
have perfected "initial-velocity" mis- 
sile launch systems such as described 
by the Duke engineers, but there is 
no definite proof. 

Laws in Conflict 

A Mr. Kilberg of New York 
bought a ticket from Northeast Air- 
lines for a flight from New York 
City to Nantucket, Massachusetts. 
While trying to land at Nantucket, 
the plane crashed killing 23 persons, 
including Kilberg. 

Kilberg's estate brought suit in 
New York for damages, alleging his 
death was caused by the airline's 
negligence. No applicable federal 
laws covered the case, and the laws 
of New York and Massachusetts con- 
flicted. In Massachusetts the law pro- 
vides a maximum recovery of $15,- 
000 for the death of any one person. 
In New York there is no arbitrary 
limit on the amount that may be 

Under traditional rules for choice 
between conflicting laws, the law of 
the state where the injury occurred 
is controlling. No questions are asked 
about what that law provides. Thus, 
under traditional rules, Massachusetts 
law applied and limited recovery to 

On grounds of policy the New 

York Court of Appeals refused, how- 
ever, to apply the Massachusetts lim- 
itation because of New York's in- 
terest in the welfare of its residents 
and their dependents. Instead, the 
court applied the New York law al- 
lowing full compensation. The dif- 
ference is dramatically illustrated by 
the fact that in the case of another 
passenger killed in the same crash, 
the jury awarded his family over 
$134,000 and Federal Courts sus- 
tained the award. 

This example was chosen by Duke 
law professor Brainerd Currie to il- 
lustrate one of the hundreds of ways 
that the legal systems of our 50 states 
and the District of Columbia con- 
flict. Indeed, many top legal figures 
regard these conflicts as the law's 
greatest problem. 

Much light, however, has recently 
been shed on this murky situation 
by Brainerd Currie whose book, Se- 
lected Essays on the Conflict of Laws 
(Duke Press, 1963), won him the 
honor of being the first recipient of 
the $1,000 Triennial Coif Award for 
legal scholarship and writing. 

Awarded by the Order of the Coif, 
the only national honorary legal fra- 
ternity in the country, the honor was 
given "In recognition of pre-eminent 
scholarship in the law" and for "out- 
standing legal publications that evi- 
dence creative talent of the highest 

One of the goals of Professor Cur- 
rie's book is to show that the place 
of injury rule often leads to unjust 

In talking about the Kilberg case 
he said, "I feel that the New York 
law expresses a policy for the pro- 
tection and compensation of New 
York residents and their families. The 
limitation provision of the Massachu- 
setts law expresses a policy for the 
protection of Massachusetts enter- 
prises. These two policies are in con- 
flict. The real problem is how to 
choose between these conflicting poli- 

How may such conflicts be re- 
solved: "My answer is very simple," 
says Professor Currie, "It is that until 
Congress exercises its power to de- 

termine which of the policies shall 
prevail, it is the duty of New York 
Courts to apply New York policy in 
cases where they have an interest, as 
in the Kilberg case. And it is the 
duty of Massachusetts courts to ap- 
ply Massachusetts policy in cases 
where they have an interest, as in 
the same case. 

"Of course in defining local policy 
and its scope a court should act with 
restraint and moderation, seeking to 
avoid so far as possible conflict with 
the interests of another state. But 
it is no part of the duty of the courts 
of either state to frustrate local policy, 
either by applying mechanical rules 
(such as the place of injury provi- 
sion) or by trying to figure out which 
state has the greater interest in ap- 
plying its law." 

Courts are not equipped to weigh 
such interests and are not free to do 
so, he maintains. Unless Congress 
intervenes to resolve the conflicts be- 
tween state laws, most courts will 
continue to follow the traditional 
mechanical rules for choice. 

However, new methods being 
adopted by courts in New York and 
other states will greatlv reduce the 
instances of injustice. 

Racial Democracy 

"Just as political democracy is the 
product of Anglo-Americans, so racial 
democracy is the handiwork of Bra- 
zilians," says Dr. Alan K. Man- 
chester, professor of history and for- 
mer dean of Trinity College. 

In an article entitled "Racial De- 
mocracy in Brazil," appearing in the 
current issue of the South Atlantic 
Quarterly, Dr. Manchester points out 
that nowhere in Brazil does racial 
origin constitute an impassable bar- 
rier to upward social mobility. 

"This is the more remarkable since 
in all probability more Africans were 
imported into Brazil than into any 
other region of the New World," 
Dr. Manchester explains. He notes, 
however, that Brazil is not entirely 
free of racial prejudice and that it 
exists "particularly in the white re- 
gions of the South, but the bleaching

"Far more vital is the discrimina- 
tion which results from differences 
in living standards and in access to

says in discussing the wavs Brazilians 

Theirs is a relatively prejudice free 
society, he concludes, and Brazilians 
of Negro descent have contributed 
much to their nation's culture since 
colonial days. 

"There were journalists such as 
Evaristo da Veiga and Jose do Pat- 
rocinio, poets such as Gonclaves Dias 
and Castro Alves, novelists such as 
Machado de Assis, engineers such as 
Andre Beboucas, and politicians such 
as Salles Torres Homen, a senator; 
Barao de Cotegipe, a cabinet min- 

ister: and Nilo Pecanha, president of 
the republic." 

Moreover, "The elevation of Fran- 
cisco de Montezuma to the rank of 
viscount demonstrated that even the 
nobility was open to mixed bloods 
during the Empire." 

Medical Research 

A new method for quick and ac- 
curate detection of often-fatal blood 
clots on the lungs has recently been 
developed according to Dr. David C. 
Sabiston, Jr., professor and chairman 
of the department of surgery at the 
Duke Medical Center. 

Dr. Sabiston discussed the new 
technique in an address in Minne- 
apolis sponsored by the American 
Therapeutic Society and the Minne- 
sota Heart Association. He said that 
by injecting a small amount of radio- 
active substance into the bloodstream, 

blood clots can be pinpointed and 
diagnosed within 30 minutes. Once 
located, they can be surgically re- 

Totally painless to the patient, the 
new method is quick, accurate and 
safe. While the radioactive tracers 
are injected into the bloodstream, an 
X-ray counter "looks" into the chest 
to locate any arteries blocked by 
clots. If clots are found, the patient 
undergoes surgery while a heart-lung 
machine takes over the functions of 
those two vital organs. 

Clots are removed from the arteries 
leading from the heart into the lungs. 
Not at all uncommon, clots in these 
arteries are very serious and often 
fatal without surgery, Dr. Sabiston 

Such a condition often follows 
surgical operations or develops in as- 
sociation with heart failure, pneu- 
monia or phlebitis. Blood clots de- 
velop in the legs and abdomen, then 
pass on into the heart and out into 
the lungs where they lodge and block 
the normal flow of blood. At the on- 
set of such an attack, the victim will 
most likely experience shortness of 
breath, indigestion-like pains and 
sudden low blood pressure, Dr. Sabis- 
ton explained. 

"Despite the use of numerous 
methods directed toward its preven- 
tion, a blood clot on the lung con- 
tinues to represent a serious threat 
to patients following operations," he

At the beginning of the season, no 
one expected this year's basketball 
team to be a match for last year's 
NCAA runner-up. After all, Jeff

to the U.S. Olympic team and then 
to the St. Louis Hawks. Buzzy Har- 
rison and Fred Schmidt had also 

The pre-season polls, however, had 
listed the Blue Devils among the top 
teams and at the mid-season break 
this rating began to look pretty ac- 
curate. Going into the Carolina 
game. Duke had lost only once — an 
early season squeaker to top-ranked 
Michigan — and was improving with 
every game. 

Carolina came to the Indoor Stadi- 
um and simply played better defense 
to eke out a 65-62 win. It was then 
that some folks thought Duke might 
have been playing over its head. 
They didn't have to wait long to be 
proven wrong, however, for the Blue 
Devils came back to overwhelm 
Clemson and Wake Forest and take 
their exam break with a 10-2 record. 

Team balance seems to be the key 
to this year's success. Four of the 
starting five — Bob Verga. Jack Marin. 
Steve Vacendak, and Hack Tison — 
are averaging in double figures. As 
a result they are second in the nation 
in offense, scoring an average of over 
95 points per game. In addition, 
Denny Ferguson, team captain and 
hustling guard, has been playing a 
smart floor game. 

The second half of the season will, 
no doubt, be rougher than the first. 
But from all indications the Blue 
Devils will be ready for it.

Do figures v,,, -s^Ssff 

reallv lie? / *.^SS» F 



Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that figures 
sometimes fall short of telling the whole truth. 

For instance, we could say that over 2,000,000 people 
are employed by the textile industry. And that would 
be true. 

But what about the people who will supply some 
$500,000,000 worth of chemicals and dyes to the textile 
industry this year? Or the people who will be 
employed to carry out a $740,000,000 textile industry 
capital improvements program in 1964? Or the couple who 
run a cafe around the corner from the mill? 

Of course, these people aren't really employed 
by textiles. 

Or are they? 




the first thing to save 
for your old age 
is you! 

Sure it's a good idea to save for those golden years. 
But you want to be around to enjoy them! That's why 
we urge you to put first things first. Form the life- 
saving habit. Have a health checkup once a year, 
every year. That way your doctor has the chance to 


detect cancer in its early and more curable stages. 
1,300,000 Americans, alive today, are cured of 
cancer . . . because they went to their doctors in time.

Designing woman? Yes indeed, but in a most admirable sense. As a member 
of the General Motors design team, she is preparing sketches of a steering 
wheel for a future GM car. Like her male associates on GM's Styling Staff, 
she is fully qualified and competent to design consumer products in any field. 

General Motors hired its first woman designer more than 20 years ago. 
Originally color and fabric consultants, the young ladies advanced rapidly 
to full membership in a group effort which now involves the skills of hun- 
dreds of people in GM Styling. In the past two decades, the feminine in- 
fluence has changed many concepts of automotive design. 

Women designers have contributed to the development of interior con- 
venience features, safety items and such innovations as color coordination 
of interiors with exteriors and particular fabrics to suit women's tastes. 
Many a man, too, is grateful for these and other feminine contributions. 

The role of women in designing beauty, utility and quality into GM prod- 
ucts is more important than ever before. 


Making Better Things For You 

&i i.. 

Cy OtflfflCTlt f rom the Editors: 


Dr. William H. Cartwright, chair- 
man of the University's educa- 
tion department, predicts (see Date- 
lines) the ultimate failure of teaching 
whole courses by TV because it ig- 
nores individualized instruction and 
forces all members of the class to 
move at the same pace. An excellent 
illustration of what can happen under 
a system that ignores individual 
strengths and weaknesses is contained 
in the following satire written by Dr. 
G. H. Reavis of the Cincinnati Public 

"Once upon a time, the animals de- 
cided they must do something heroic 
to meet the problems of the 'new 
world.' So they organized a school. 

"They adopted an activity curricu- 
lum consisting of running, climbing, 
swimming and flying. To make it 
easier to administer the curriculum 
all animals took all the subjects. 

"The duck was excellent in swim- 
ming, in fact better than his instruc- 
tor, but he made only passing grades 
in flying and very poor in running. 
Since he was slow in running, he had 
to stay after school and also drop 
swimming to practice running. This 
was kept up until his web feet were 
badly worn and he was only average

in swimming. But average was ac- 
ceptable in school so nobody worried 
about that except the duck. 

"The rabbit started at the top of 
the class in running, but he had a 
nervous breakdown because of so 
much make-up work in swimming. 

"The squirrel was excellent in climb- 
ing until he developed frustration in 
the flying class where his teacher made 
him start from the ground up instead 
of from the treetop down. He also 
developed a 'charlie-horse' from 
overexertion and then got C in climb- 
ing and D in running. 

"The eagle was a problem child 
and was disciplined severely. In the 
climbing class he beat all the others 
to the top of the tree, but insisted 
on using his own way to get there. 

"At the end of the year, an ab- 
normal eel that could swim exceed- 
ingly well, and also run, climb, and 
fly a little had the highest average and 
was valedictorian. 

"The prairie dogs stayed out of 
school and fought the tax levy be- 
cause the administration would not 
add digging and burrowing to the 
curriculum. They apprenticed their 
child to a badger and later joined 
the groundhogs and gophers to start 
a successful private school."

Six Cliches 

of a 

I. Once Upon a Time . . . 

Once upon a time in a far away land a princess 
was born. In the midst of the celebration a 
wicked godmother appeared and decreed that 
on her sixteenth birthday the princess would prick 
her finger on a spinning wheel and fall dead. Only 
through the power of a good godmother could this 
dreadful sentence be reduced from death to a hun- 
dred years of sleep. And so it happened that the 
princess did find the tragic spinning wheel, she did 
prick her finger, and she did fall into a deep sleep. 
But after her century-long nap a handsome prince 
kissed her lips and she awakened. Whereupon they 
married and lived happily ever after. 

This concludes the story. And let no one suggest 
that it be in any way edited, for it has for centuries 
been a story of pure enchantment for little girls. To 
bigger girls, however, particularly those of us who 
have been asked to read the story over and over till 
the pages fell from the book, certain questions surely 
have arisen. 


Happily Ever After 


Dr. Kreps, with two Duke degrees (M.A. and 
Ph.D.), is associate professor of economics and the 
author of books and articles on employment, income 
and retirement problems. This year she holds a Ford 
Faculty Fellowship for study of hard-core unemploy- 
ment. She and her husband, Dr. Clifton H. Kreps, Jr., 
who is Wachovia professor of banking at the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina, have three children. 

Have you ever wondered what actually happened 
to the prince and particularly to the princess after 
they were married? For example, did they go to five in 
his father's castle? If so, how did she get on with the 
queen who was, incidentally, her mother-in-law? How 
many children did she have? Were they well adjusted 
or did she have to seek "professional help" for them? 
How did she handle the problem of sibling rivalry, 
which in this case may have been over no smaller a 
goal than the throne itself? 

How much did she see of her husband? Did wars, 
affairs of state, and commuting time ruin his family 
life? How could she possibly keep house without de- 
tergents? What did she do with herself when the 
children were all in school? She couldn't very well 
spend her time cleaning out the closets, as is sometimes 
the refuge of nonprincesses. Did she grow old grace- 
fully? Did she outlive her husband and, if so, by 
how many years? What kind of pension could she 
claim in an era that preceded the advent of Social 
Security? In short, what was it like to live happily 
ever after? 

These unromantic queries, you may protest, do 
violence to the "happily ever after" theme. The es- 
sence of the fairy tale was of course to show that the 
young lovers had overcome all the obstacles by the 
time of the marriage; no new problems could possibly 

be on the horizon, once the vows were spoken. All 
the dragons were slain, all the witches' spells broken. 

III. The Myth in Modern Dress 

In the days when life's problems could be so easily 
traced to the powers of the traditional witch, perhaps 
the solution was in fact as simple as the stories relate. 
But, alas, the modern world brings with it a prevalence 
of new witches, and today's breed have the disquieting 
capacity to haunt after as well as before the wedding. 
Evidence that the married princess is not immune to 
evil spirits is on every hand: in the "Dear Abby" col- 
umns, on the psychiatrist's couch, in the divorce 
courts. The evidence is so unmistakable, in fact, that 
one may well wonder why those of us who influence 
the thinking of young princesses permit the myth to 
be perpetuated. 

We have done so, of course, either deliberately or 
by default, and we have been greatly abetted by ad- 
vertisers eager to sell household goods, by parents 
eager to see their children "married and settled down," 
by writers who portray, over and over, the romantic 
story that begins with calculated pursuit and ends 
with legalized surrender. In this modern version of 
the pursuit it is sometimes difficult to tell which sex 
plays which role. Apparently the reversal of roles is 
permitted — even applauded — as long as the man is 
not allowed to suspect that he is the pursued and not 
the pursuer. 

Because we have done such a thorough job of per- 
suading young girls that they must, above all (and on 
schedule) marry and have a family, we have made 
them terribly afraid that they will fail to find a husband. 
It is perfectly understandable, then, that young ladies 
begin to feel that something is wrong if they aren't 
engaged by the time they are seniors and married 
shortly thereafter. Increasingly, such pressures have 
apparently been felt even among high school students. 
In her concentration on this major objective, the col- 
lege girl finds it difficult to conceive of herself ten 
years hence, when she is likely to have a husband who 
works, children who are in school, and a home that 
requires something less than her complete intellectual 
attention. And she finds it impossible to imagine her- 
self at middle age (that nice, vague term that to the 
young denotes not an age, but a state of vegetation), 
when her time is very largely her own. Since middle- 
age is incomprehensible, in the prospect of old age, 
and particularly the probable years of widowhood, 
may well be postponed for later consideration. 

IV. Pursuits, Intellectual and Otherwise 

We have placed marriage above all else. That is 
where it properly belongs for most women. But we 
have failed to emphasize certain related data. First, 
we have somehow not convinced college girls that 
husbands really aren't that hard to find. Chances are 
very good, in fact, that the coeds could not escape 
marriage even if they tried. Every minute of every 
day women are getting married — tall women, short 
ones, skinny, fat, rich and poor — to an equally wide 
assortment of men. Some women aren't getting mar- 
ried because they choose to remain single, a status 
which many of their hastily-married sisters may come 
to envy. There is a great deal of freedom of choice 
in the matter of getting married. 

In addition to making the capture of a husband 
seem unnecessarily difficult, we have failed to direct 
the coed's attention to the evolutionary nature of her 
life after marriage. The first year or so, yes — -she has 
to work till her husband finishes school, or till they can 
buy a home. We may hint at the drudgery of house- 
work, particularly when she has small children. But 
almost never do we ask the coed how she imagines her 
life will be in a later period of her existence. And 
never do we ask her, when she says she is getting 
married at graduation: "And what do you plan to 
do with your mind?" 

Yet isn't it our responsibility to ask her that ques- 
tion? We are the faculty and staff of institutions of 
higher learning; we are not, after all, merely the 
window dressing for a marriage bureau. An exciting 
by-product of the pursuit of knowledge may indeed be 
the pursuit of the opposite sex. Universities erect very 
few roadblocks in either case. But our attitude to- 
ward the relative value of the two pursuits seems to 
depend to a great extent on whether the student is 
male or female. The man is expected to develop in- 
tellectual interests that will spark a lifetime; the woman, 
if she marries, is not. 

We are not pushing the coed hard enough on this 
point. If she is led to think of the lifetime ahead of 
her, instead of just her first year of marriage, her at- 
titude will reflect this long-run view. She will be much 
more interested in developing some minimum prepara- 
tion for future explorations in the discipline she finds 
most appealing. She will give time and thought to 
ways of "keeping up" with a subject that intrigues her, 
knowing that in later years she can pick up where she 
left off. If she seriously wants a career, she will 
realize that there will be ample time for one, even if 
she has a family. 

V. The Cliches 

The tide is surely turning toward a greater insis- 
tence that college women consider themselves perma- 
nent participants in intellectual matters, and moreover, 
that they view their long-run professional prospects 
as delayed, but not necessarily terminated, by mar- 
riage and a family. But though many professors and 
counselors may be forcing the coed to look ahead, 
we seem still to be victims of a number of half-truths. 
Some of these cliches are found primarily in industry 
and the professions. Others are implicit in current 
fiction. They are voiced by men who have little to 
gain and by women who ought to know better. Until 
we lay these ghosts to rest, young women will con- 
tinue to minimize the long-run importance of their 
intellectual development, and will continue actually 
to avoid preparation for a lifetime of learning. 

Two of the most familiar of these cliches have to 
do with the role of marriage in a woman's life: one, 
a successful marriage fulfills a woman, and two, home- 
making is a full time job. In reality, a woman who goes 
through four years of college these days runs the risk 
of becoming interested in something that she feels 
obliged to study further. To insist that she forego her 
own particular interests altogether, either because she 
isn't supposed to want anything but a happy family, 
or because her family needs her full time, is pretty 
absurd. Nobody will insist, probably, but all the same 
mothers of the postwar generation were made to feel 
guilty when they went back to school, and there is 
still some hangover of this notion. 

The question of fulfillment is an elusive one. Since 
no one has ever suggested that marriage is supposed 
to fulfill a man, we must conclude that the woman is 
supposed to be very much more dependent on marriage 
for gratification and that she receives much more 
satisfaction from marriage than her husband. Herein 
may lie the source of some of our bitterest disappoint- 
ments. If a woman expects marriage to satisfy her 
completely and then finds it doesn't, she is very likely 
to reason that it is a poor marriage. Actually, she 
has been led to expect of marriage something that 
marriage per se cannot provide, that is, growth of her 
own personality and intellect. 

The question of whether homemaking is a fulltime 
job is not elusive; it is merely controversial. When 
there are small children to care for, it takes as many 
hours a day as one can stand on her feet for as many 
years as the children remain small. But then, one 
day these demands are greatly reduced. Many women 
say that they continue to be frantically busy running 
the home. I'm sure they are. And this confirms what 

I have long suspected, which is that I am a very poor 
housekeeper. Because I can't for the life of me find 
much to do after the children leave for school. 

The second set of cliches has to do with women's 
intellects, or lacks thereof. The first is that woman's 
forte is intuition, not intellect, and the second: its, 
unfeminine to be intelligent. Well. Whoever it was 
that introduced the notion that sex appeal and I.Q. 
were inversely related did bright girls a great dis- 
service. But to see women accept it as gospel and 
deliberately try to mask their intellects behind a va- 
cant, simpering approach to men is the surprising 
thing. The final blow is, of course, to see how often 
it works. 

In the classroom this doesn't happen very often. 
A girl may be very quiet for a while, but it's impossible 
for her not to come alive often enough to give herself 
away. The interesting thing is, though, that the coeds 
won't argue as vehemently as the men. Is this from 
fear of being found unattractive? The undergraduate 
men would probably find it challenging — at least this 
would be true of those men the bright girls find in- 
teresting. As for intuition, women of all ages use it 
for winning arguments when they are in a hurry and 
don't have time to marshal the facts. It is under- 
stood that, given time for research, the gal could win 
fair and square. 

The more serious complaints against women turn 
on their alleged use of tears instead of logic, their 
insistence that their sex gives them certain prerogatives 
as to changing their minds, failing to observe schedules, 
etc. How can women answer these charges except by 
disproving them? How many dedicated, hardworking 
professional women does it take to undo the damage 
inflicted by one cry-baby? 

The third set of cliches is related to women in 
careers. First, career women are neurotic, and, second, 
women can't get along (professionally) with other 
women. A woman with a career is supposed to be 
neurotic because she went into the career in the first 
place because she was frustrated in her love life be- 
cause she was probably a cold, unfeeling kind of 
woman and thus her career is a substitute for the kind 
of life a normal woman leads. She gets along poorly 
with other women in her profession because she en- 
vies them, and she persecutes the poor women who 
work for her because they are generally younger and 
more successful with men. Ergo, women never like 
to work for other women. 

Whether career women have more neuroses than 
nonworking women can be answered only by the 
psychiatrists. But you can pretty well explode the 
myth by one test: What career woman do you know 

who has time for a respectable neurosis? Moreover, 
the unhappy woman in a career would probably be 
equally unhappy at home, only in the latter case her 
husband and children would bear the discomfort she 
now heaps on her colleagues. The important point is 
that a woman with a keen intellect plus the willingness 
to work at a job outside the home is likely to find 
life interesting, and an interest in her work is probably 
the best insurance against neuroses. 

Often the term "neurotic career woman" is ap- 
plied to a particular type of woman, generally one who 
is both extremely ambitious and somewhat unsure of 
her ability to achieve. The combination may lead 
her to fall back upon the complaint that she is being 
discriminated against because she is a woman. Dis- 
crimination against women in the job market is of 
course not a new phenomenon, nor is it a pleasant 
fact of life. But the woman who really wants to go 
for the big job needs to remind herself that work, not 
complaints, may be more effective. She has to be 
willing to play the game like a pro, and nurse her 
disappointments in private. Moreover, it may reduce 
her frustrations somewhat to remember the comment 
that Irene Taeuber, the noted demographer, made 
when she was on the Duke campus a year or so ago. 
"When a job I would have liked to do is assigned to 
a man, I always entertain the possibility — just enter- 
tain it, mind you — that he was better equipped to do 
that particular job." 

It's hard to be objective about one's own capabili- 
ties. In fact, Dr. Taeuber is one of the women whose 
ability has been so clearly demonstrated that she can 
afford to raise the question without any qualms; most 
of us are still in the process of proving ourselves. 
But it's one thing to warn young women that they may 
not "arrive" on schedule in a demanding profession, 
and quite another to let them leave the halls of learn- 
ing with the notion that the rigorous pursuit of a 
career is somehow "unnatural." And we would make 
a glorious contribution to the welfare of mankind if 
we could, once and for all, dispell the idea that certain 
disciplines and certain professions are not open to 
women. It seems to me unnecessary to demonstrate 
further the capabilities of women in the natural 
sciences, in law and medicine. Yet young women 
enter these fields with great misgivings, as though they 
are doomed to failure. 

VI. On Aspirations and Achievements 

We have been confusing ability to master these 
disciplines, which the coeds certainly have, with moti- 

vation to do so, which, alas, the girls do not have. 
For though they plan to work after graduation, they 
have no plans to do so beyond the usual couple of 
years. And though they have keen interest and dem- 
onstrated abilities in say, drama or music, they often 
have no long-run plans for developing their talents 
either for fun or for the marketplace. Yet at age 
thirty-five the woman college graduate will have 
worked two years, had three children two years apart, 
sent the youngest one off to school, and begun to look 
for new outlets for her energies. 

A vast array of community service projects stands 
ready and waiting. The woman who devotes herself 
to this form of public service often works harder than 
the rest of us, and she receives little praise and no 
money. But even so, if these activities satisfy her and 
actually utilize her talents, there can be no complaint. 
The fact that by the time they are age forty-five half 
of the women will be in the labor force indicates, 
however, that jobs are increasingly the outlet for mid- 
dle-aged women. The woman who takes a job at 
thirty-five will have thirty years to work before re- 

This makes the question of the kind of job very 
important. No longer can the coed dismiss her brief 
pre-baby bout in the labor force as a temporary ex- 
pedient. She is compelled to give some attention to 
the work that is to occupy her for thirty years. Her 
preparations needs to be aimed at the development of 
skills and interests that will serve her well in this 
longer-run context. Given the much longer length of 
her working life, today's coed is well advised to lay 
the ground work very carefully. 

In many cases it isn't necessary for her to stop 
school with an a.b. She can often get a fellowship 
(that will pay almost as much as typing pays) and 
continue in school, with or without a husband. Hav- 
ing an m.a. or a teacher's certificate or some expe- 
rience with the kind of work she likes to do makes it 
very much easier to pick this work up again. 

In conclusion, we have three major challenges 
before us. We have first, to disprove the cliches that 
persist in discouraging young women from using their 
intellects; we need second, to focus the coed's atten- 
tion on her long-run marriage-family-work pattern, 
rather than allowing her to assume that love conquers 
all; and finally, for the sake of the nation, if not the 
women themselves, we have somehow to lift the level 
of aspirations of our brighter women students, and 
thereby help to meet today's vast shortage of highly 
trained personnel.

Reflected in the glass backboard 
of the Indoor Stadium the bas- 
ketball team runs through a 
practice session observed only 
by the long rows of empty seats. 

Head Coach Vic Bubas 

and assistant Bucky Waters 

discuss pregame strategy. 


The Indoor Stadium, which once seemed so 
large, has become a small place indeed on any 
one of the ten times during the season that a 
varsity basketball game is played. Its seats are filled 
with people of all sizes, shapes and ages. And no 
matter who they are, they all know why they are 
there. Just like the old Saturday afternoon serial at the 
movies, they have come to cheer their heroes and hiss 
the villains. 

There are the traditional cliff-hangers that keep 
them sitting on the edges of their seats shouting lustily 
for the triumph of good over evil. As of old, peanuts, 
popcorn and Pepsis sustain them through their ordeal. 
But in place of the piano player, the Straw Hat Band, 
in their blue and white striped blazers, provides the 
music. The dancing cheerleaders are another innova- 
tion, and a definite contribution, with their bright 
costumes and inexhaustible supplies of energy. 

But these are all fringe benefits to the real attrac- 
tion, the game itself. Down there on the polished 
wood, between the neat black boundary lines are the 
men who make the game what it is — ten players and 
two referees. All eyes focus on them and react to 
their movements.

"You can accomplish anything you want as long as you don't care 
who gets the credit for it," reads the dressing room sign, and this 
stress on teamwork is evident in the spirited practice session while, 
below, Vic Bubas talks with athletic business manager Red Lewis. 


Bucky Waters reviews strategy with chalk, and (below) team captain Denny Ferguson chats with Ron Herbster. 

In recent years the fans have been amply rewarded 
for their devotion. In what is surely an outstanding 
record, the Blue Devils have lost only three home 
games in over three years of some of the most com- 
petitive basketball in the country. Two of those losses 
have come this year, but they are, so far, the only 
losses this year's team has had. In the past two years 
Duke teams have not only won their conference cham- 
pionship, but have finished consecutively third and 
second in the NCAA finals. This leaves them, as 
some say, only one place left to go — number one! 

But such a record is no accident. It is the result 
of a great deal of hard work on the part of Coach 
Vic Bubas, his assistant Bucky Waters, and the players 
themselves. A basketball game, with its two twenty- 
minute halves, is only forty minutes long. What de- 
termines its outcome more often than not are the long 
hours that go into preparing for the game. Teamwork 
is the key factor.

A chronicle of important events and developments at Duke University 

Influe?tce for Good 

President Douglas M. Knight 
stressed the joint responsibility of 
higher education and the press to 
influence society for good when he 
addressed members of the North 
Carolina Press Association at their 
annual dinner here last month. "Your 
influence," Dr. Knight said, "like that 
of the universities, is based on the 
concept of the free, inquiring, re- 
sponsible mind." 

Both the press and the universities 
have an obligation to show society 
how ideas are part of the active life 
of our world, Dr. Knight said. In 
the past, he pointed out, there were 
societies where a man's stature was 
measured by his muscles, but today 
toughness of intellect is more im- 
portant to a society of free men. And, 
he emphasized, "we have a common 
responsibility to show that we live 
in a world where ideas are a funda- 
mental part of the active and imme- 
diate life of our time." 

In addition, both the professor and 
the journalist have to stand up to 


the complexity of the truth about the 
things with which they deal. It is 
often tempting to simplify the truth, 
and painful to admit that the simpli- 
fied version does not fit reality. It is 
important, therefore, to be willing to 
take complex truth and talk about 
it. Dr. Knight said, because the jour- 
nalist is just as much a teacher as 
the professor. 

In discussing the region, Dr. Knight 
showed a perceptive awareness of 
the history of the South. Though 
largely deprived of the economic tri- 
umphs of the last century, the South 
is now beginning to move forward 
with the added advantage of learning 
from the mistakes of others. "Before 
us," he said, "is the prospect of edu- 
cational, medical and technical ac- 
complishment without some of the 
terrible burdens and residues of heavy 

He did not, however, minimize the 
problems of the present, but sug- 
gested that "we must not lose heart 
and courage ourselves; and we must 
not allow those who read our papers, 
who study at our universities, who 
talk with us, argue with us, think 
with us, to lose some sense of balance 
and some sense of hope in the midst 
of this difficult, complex, overwhelm- 
ing time for our world." 

Looking Backward 

From the vantage point of one 
hundred years in the future, Dr. Wil- 
liam H. Cartwright, professor and 
chairman of the department of edu- 
cation, concludes that today every 
state is ignorant about teacher train- 

In an article entitled "The Teacher 
in 2065" appearing in the current is- 
sue of the Teachers College Record, 
Dr. Cartwright looks back a hundred 
years to 1965, and comes up with 
some interesting conclusions. 

"That even the experts had little 
certain knowledge about teaching is 
easily documented from the profes- 
sional literature of the time," he finds. 
But, "despite this admitted ignorance 
every state in the Union prescribed 
many detailed requirements for teach- 
er education." 

Authorities "emulated primitive 
people by enforcing their decisions 
rigidly and by not encouraging the 
trial of new procedures through which 
individual colleges and schools might 
improve their own programs for the 
preparation of teachers," Dr. Cart- 
wright charges. They were not to 
blame, he adds, because hardly any 
knowledge was based on research. 

"For a generation after 1950, 
school systems — even entire states 
and regions — tried to teach whole 
courses by television. Ultimately, this 
costly experiment failed," because, he 
relates, educational leaders eventually 
learned the value of individualized 
instruction in a class where "all of 
the members were forced by a tele- 
vision set to move at the same pace." 

During this period the situation 
was so bad that former Harvard presi- 
dent Dr. James B. Conant was per- 
suaded to make a nationwide study 
of the education of teachers. "Dr. 
Conant's proposal for immediate 
change was to relax the rules so as 
to encourage trial and improvement," 
Dr. Cartwright notes. "He pointed 
out that much of the material prog- 
ress of the 19th and 20th centuries 
had resulted from trial and improve- 
ment carried out in the absence of 
scientific research." 

Women s Place 

Whether or not women's place is 
in the home has been the subject of 
lively debate for a number of years. 
The traditionalists want women to 
remain at home, while the modern- 

ists believe women have valuable con- 
tributions to make outside the home. 

Recent reports on this phase of the 
eternal battle of the sexes indicate 
that the traditionalists are on the 

Special forces, known officially as 
the Governor's Commission on the 
Status of Women, under the com- 
mand of Dr. Anne Firor Scott seem 
to have gained the upper hand with 
the publication of their report, The 
Many Lives of North Carolina 

Dr. Scott, who is assistant pro- 
fessor of history at Duke, and her 
group have been studying the prob- 
lem for over a year. Their report is 
informative, well-written, and loaded 
with ammunition that will surely put 
the traditionalists to rout. 

For instance, one psychologist's 
study shows that children of part 
time working mothers have better 
mental health than those whose moth- 
ers work full time or not at all. So 
mothers working part time should 
not feel guilty about their children 
if the quality of care is otherwise 

Commenting on this in an interview, 
Dr. Scott said, "I'm convinced that 
it is not good for children to have 
their mothers around all the time. 
Children need to develop indepen- 
dence but they need support too. The 
happiest situation is when children 
find their mothers available if needed, 
but are pleasantly occupied when she 
is not there." 

The commission studied many types 
of women including homemakers, vol- 
unteer workers, and women in search 
of more training or education. They 
also documented the problem, which 
is by no means limited to North 
Carolina, of women getting unequal 
pay for equal work. This is a grave 
problem for women who are the 
heads of families and number about 
120,000 in the state. Many of these 
women are in need of further train- 
ing to improve their skills, and they 
also need centers where their chil- 
dren may be cared for. 

The report is a valuable contribu- 
tion to society and especially to the 
women of the state. It clarifies many 

things and pinpoints specific prob- 

Life of the Aged 

"What will life be like for me when 
I'm old," is a question people fre- 
quently ask Dr. George Maddox. Dr. 
Maddox is associate professor of med- 
ical sociology in the psychiatry de- 

"My answer to them is that I must 
first know what life has been like 
for them until now," he said. "I 
don't underestimate the capacity of 
people to change, but it's not easy 
to undo the experiences of a life- 

Dr. Maddox believes that a per- 
son's "style of life" isn't going to 
change just because he is getting old, 
and that by looking backward toward 
middle age an older person can often 
forecast how active or inactive his 
future will be. 

In an interview before speaking to 
the University's Council on Geron- 
tology, Dr. Maddox exploded some 
concepts associated with the popular 
"disengagement theory" which out- 
lines a formal withdrawal pattern as 
observed in older persons. 

He said that people cannot be ex- 
pected to behave any more as a group 
when they are elderly than when 
they were middle aged. Those who 
appear withdrawn from society at 
age 70 probably were relatively dis- 
engaged at age 50. 

"The disengagement theory as- 
sumes that we were all cut from the 
same piece of cloth," Dr. Maddox 
said. "But this is not true. As indi- 
viduals, we are all cut from different 
fabrics and have very different op- 

Convinced that older persons do 
not withdraw from social life accord- 
ing to a single pattern, he said the 
disengagement theory is not useful 
when applied to all old people and 
that old persons who are best ad- 
justed are usuallv those who were 
well adjusted to society in their 
middle years. 

"There is no single theory of suc- 
cessful aging," Dr. Maddox stated, 
"but the disengagement theory rep- 

resents a starting point. And it has 
stimulated research." 

Faculty News 

• Reynolds Price, assistant professor 
of English, has agreed to write the 
screen version of his award-winning 
first novel, A Long and Happy Life. 

The setting of the novel is in North 
Carolina, and it won the 1962 Wil- 
liam Faulkner Foundation Award. 

"My generation grew up on mov- 
ies," says Price, who has no apolo- 
gies for taking the assignment. "While 
the previous generation of writers 
looked upon films with contempt, I 
think that my contemporaries in- 
stinctively think in cinematic terms. 
We are drawn to this field not only 
because of its familiarity but also 
because the most interesting works of 
art of our generation have been in 
the realm of motion pictures." 

In agreeing to write for the movies, 
Reynolds Price joins such writers as 
Philip Roth, Gore Vidal, Frank Gil- 
roy and lames Baldwin. Moreover, 
he believes the number of established 
authors who write for films will in- 
crease in the future. 

Younger writers who now do movie 
scripts have a more positive attitude 
toward their craft than did such au- 
thors as Ernest Hemingway, Thorn- 
ton Wilder and William Faulkner, 
Price contends. 

In addition to his first novel, Mr. 
Price has also written a book of short 
stories, The Names and Faces of He- 
roes, and his second novel, Clear Day, 
is scheduled to be published soon. 

• Dr. John D. Sullivan, assistant pro- 
fessor of wood science in the School 
of Forestry, will spend the 1965-66 
academic year doing research at the 
U.S. Forest Products Laboratory in 
Madison. Wisconsin. 

While there he will conduct studies 
in micromeasurements of wood struc- 
ture and strength on a cellular basis. 
The results of his findings will be pub- 
lished in the summer of 1966. 

Author of a number of technical 
articles in the field of wood adhesives 
and wood chemistry, Dr. Sullivan will 
return to Duke following his sab- 


batical leave to teach timber physics 
and chemistry of wood. 

• Dr. and Mrs. John Vernberg, mem- 
bers of the faculty and staff at the 
Duke Marine Laboratory at Beaufort, 
have been awarded Fulbright grants 
for a year's continuation of their stud- 
ies on the fiddler crab. They will be 
working at the University of Sao 
Paulo in Brazil. 

While there, Dr. Vernberg and his 
wife, also a Ph.D. and research spe- 
cialist in Marine Parasitology, will

NASA Grant 

The National Aeronautics and 
Space Administration has awarded 
the University "$177,000 to support 
ten more graduate students in space- 
oriented sciences and technology. 

Twenty pre-doctoral candidates are 
already in the NASA-sponsored pro- 
gram which began at Duke in the 
fall of 1963. The program continues 
during the current academic year 
under a similar grant made last spring. 

The 10 students entering the pro- 
gram next September will study in 
such fields as biochemistry, botany, 
chemistry, economics, mathematics, 
physics, political science, psychology, 
zoology and engineering. 

Duke is one of 10 institutions orig- 
inally selected by NASA to par- ' 
ticipate in the program, which aims 
to increase the supply of highly- 
trained specialists for the nation's 
space effort. 

Blue Devil Sports 

The last home game of the current 
basketball season was against the Uni- 
versity of Virginia on February 11. 
It was a memorable night in many 
ways as the Duke team rewrote the 
record book. 

The final score was 136 points for 
Duke to 72 for Virginia, and the 
Blue Devils set team and ACC rec- 
ords for the most points and most 
field goals scored in a single game. 
The 136 point total broke the old 
team record of 121 scored against 
Navy a year ago and equalled this 
year against Penn State. The 55 field 
goals scored exceeded by one the 
total scored against the Nittany Lions. 

The new ACC record of 136 points 
was 10 points better than the previous 
record scored by N. C. State against 
William & Mary in 1955. 

In addition, all 14 Duke players 
saw action and each of them scored. 
Ten of them shot better than 50 per- 
cent from the floor, and seven of 


them were 100 percent from the 
foul line. 

As the final home game for the 
seniors on the team, it was especially 
satisfying. Also, it closely followed 
a tough 78-67 overtime win against 
N. C. State. 

' Since the Virginia game, the Blue 
Devils hsye continued to win, and 
are established as the top-seeded team 
in the ACC tournament in Raleigh 
the first weekend in March. The 
tournament winner becomes the ACC 
champion and will go to the Eastern 
regionafs in Maryland the following 

On the third weekend in March, 
four of the country's best collegiate 
basketball teams will meet in Cor- 
vallis, Oregon. The winner of this 
meeting will be the NCAA champion 
for 1965. 

At the beginning of the season it 
looked like a long way to Oregon, 
but as the season draws to a close 
it seems a good deal nearer. The 
distance now is three games in Ra- 
leigh and two in Maryland. It just 
might be that the Blue Devils will 
have an opportunity to avenge their 
early season defeat to Michigan and 
last year's NCAA championship loss 
to UCLA. 

Baseball coach Ace Parker has 
started his pitchers throwing in the 
Indoor Stadium against a background 
of bouncing basketballs. Jay Hop- 
kins, Charlie Young, Carter Hill and 
Dean Helms were among the right- 
handers and Parker expects a few 
more prospects, including a southpaw, 
to report soon. 

"I won't be able to tell anything 
until they get outside," Coach Parker 
said. "They need that atmospheric 
conditioning to really get into shape." 

The outfielders and infielders are 
scheduled to report March 1. The 
home opener is scheduled for March 
24, against Dartmouth. 

Duke swimmer Jim Burwell from 
Greensboro, N. C. is one of the best 
to ever swim for the Blue Devils ac- 
cording to coach Jack Persons. A 
top-flight sprinter, Burwell's specialty 
is the 100 yard freestyle. His best 
time for that event :50.6. He is 
also a relay team anchorman. 

In winter track, Duke tied for sec- 
ond in the "Big Six" indoor meet 
recently at Chapel Hill. 

The Blue Devils most impressive 
event was the shot-put, winning three 
out of four places. Rod Stewart took 
first place with a put of 54'8". Rodger 
Parker was second and Crowell was 

Nick Homer placed second in the 
pole vault and George Flowers third 
in the mile. Art Jacobsen took sec- 
ond in the 1000 yard run, and the 
Duke mile-* relay team came in second.

Robert L. Chambers, head train- 
er, track coach and assistant profes- 
sor of physical education, died sud- 
denly and unexpectedly of a heart 
attack on February 11. He was 58 
years old. 

Familiarly known as "Doc," Bob 
Chambers had not been suffering from 
any illness, and had been at work 
the day before, coaching outdoor 
track practice in addition to his reg- 
ular duties. 

A graduate of the University of 
Illinois where he had played football, 
wrestled, and been on two champion- 
ship track teams, Bob Chambers 
joined the Duke staff in 1933. He be- 
came the University's first full time 
trainer when he took over those du- 
ties from Dr. Lenox Baker. During 
his 32 years on the staff, he never 
missed a football game. Altogether 
he had attended 313 consecutive 

Recognized as one of the nation's 
outstanding trainers, he was also 
among the top track coaches in the 
country. He became head track coach 
in 1939, and developed such out- 
standing trackmen as Dave Sime, Joel 
Shankle and Cary Weisiger. 

In the course of his long career at 
Duke, he held top posts in both the 
national association of trainers and 
of track coaches. He is survived by 
his wife, three daughters, and two

Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that figures 
sometimes fall short of telling the whole truth. 

For instance, we could say that over 2,000,000 people 
are employed by the textile industry. And that would 
be true. 

But what about the people who will supply some 
$500,000,000 worth of chemicals and dyes to the textile 
industry this year? Or the people who will be 
employed to carry out a $740,000,000 textile industry 
capital improvements program in 1954? Or the couple who 
run a cafe around the corner from the mill? 

Of course, these people aren't really employed 
by textiles. 

Or are they?

If you called this General Motors development engineer "moon-struck," he'd 
probably agree with you. For he's a member of the team whose objective is 
to put a man on the moon by 1970. 

Together with several hundred other engineers, scientists and technicians, he 
is contributing to the development, fabrication, assembly, integration and 
testing of the guidance and navigation system for the Apollo spacecraft. His 
mind is literally on the moon — and how to get three men there and back safely. 

Educationally, he is highly qualified, but fast-changing technology requires 
his constant study. If he does not have two degrees already, chances are 
that he is working on a second right now under GM's tuition refund plan. 

Throughout General Motors there are hundreds of professionals like him 
working on projects relating to our nation's space and defense programs. Like 
their counterparts who are developing commercial products, they are dedicated 
General Motors people. 


Making Better Things For You 


Not at all. Matter of fact, many Connecticut Mutual Life policyholders are 
tycoons-in-the-making who still have to make every dollar count. 

Which may be the very reason they gave the nod to CML. 

Men who analyze and compare policies and companies find telling advantages 
in 'Blue Chip' insurance. Money-saving benefits. For example, Connecticut 
Mutual's higher dividends to policyholders result in low net cost insurance. 
Connecticut Mutual's agents are career men, professionally trained to 
recommend the insurance plan that best fits the client's needs and income. 
And Connecticut Mutual's unusually wide choice of policies (over 50) 
and range of benefits (over 90) snugly fit the coverage to the need. 

You'll find— if you look— you don't have to be rich to own 'Blue Chip' 
insurance. Just astute.

ays of momentous decision are 
seldom distinguishable from 
more ordinary days. 

In 1890 when the trustees of Old 
Trinity met to accept an offer to 
move the institution from Randolph 
County to Durham, it was probably 
on a day quite routine in most cor- 
ners of the tiny campus. 

On December 11, 1924, when the 
trustees of a newer Trinity met to 
consider changing both the name 
and status of the institution, in keep- 
ing with the provisions of the In- 
denture of Trust which established 
the Duke Endowment, there was a 
serene and undisturbed pursuance 
of life in classroom, dormitory, and 
on the playing fields. 

On Friday, March 5 of this year, 
when the men and women of Duke's 
board of trustees met to make an- 
other momentous decision, it was 
also outwardly just another day at 
Duke. The full implications of the 
trustee decision are still being real- 
ized, both on the campus and away 
from it, and the excitement and the 
satisfaction are still growing. 

Among numerous members of the 
faculty, some students, and even 
among the scattered officers of 
alumni organizations there was a 
feeling of expectancy. They were 
more fully aware of the plans the 
board was contemplating, and that 
the time had arrived for a decision. 

The decision made on March 5 
will doubtlessly prove epochal, as 
much so as those made in 1890 and 
1924. It was announced publicly 
five days later, on Wednesday, 
March 10. That morning someone 
passing through the Union lobby 
glanced at the headlines on the Dur- 
ham Morning Herald and remarked 
with casual drama, "It looks like 
Duke has entered a decade of 

And that may have been a totally 
appropriate summation of the events 
of March 5. 

The Decision: 

JL/uke's trustees have voted unan- 
imously to launch the University 
into a decade of development, one 
that will require the acquisition and 
expenditure of 187 million dollars. 
The action climaxed more than 
five years of extensive and detailed 
study, participated in by the facul- 
ties of every school, college, and 

Special Message to Alumni 
from President Knight: 

President Douglas M. Knight 

In reaching out to realize our 
mutual ambitions for Duke, a call 
will be made upon the energies and 
resources of every member of the 
greater University family. 

It must be emphasized, however, 
that one of the University's great 
needs is for continuing and grow- 
ing annual support. I speak par- 
ticularly of the sort of unrestricted 
and immediately expendable funds 
provided by alumni, parents of stu- 
dents, and other friends through 
the Loyalty Fund. 

This is essential support. With- 
out it we could never achieve our 
major goals nor have a University 
able to render truly outstanding ser- 
vice through programs of genuine 
and continuing excellence. 

If this sounds like a personal plea 
for a strong and growing Loyalty 
Fund effort as a part of a broad 
development program, I'll confess 
that it is precisely that. Every mem- 
ber of the board of trustees, every 
officer of Duke University shares my 
conviction that the Loyalty Fund 
is expendable. It will, in fact, have 
an unprecedented importance in the 
decade ahead of us.

tive groups of alumni, parents, and 
other intimately involved friends. 
The program, presented by Presi- 
dent Knight for final approval at the 
trustee meeting on March 5, was 
the result of additional months of 
administrative coordination and re- 
finement, during which ambitions 
had been measured against potential, 
needs against resources, and oppor- 
tunities for new and increased ser- 
vice against solid evidence of broad 

The program calls for construc- 
tion projects amounting to $102.4 
million, the addition of $40.6 mil- 
lion to the University's endowment, 
and gift support for current operat- 
ing expenses totaling $44.4 million 
during the next ten years. Of the 
total amount required, some $22.9 
million are already in hand or com- 

In developing the program, par- 
ticularly care was given to main- 
taining a sound, and at Duke tradi- 
tional, balance among the various 
disciplines and enterprises the Uni- 
versity encompasses, and emphasis 
was placed on obligations that the 
University has assumed in its region 
as well as to its national stature. 

It would be an exaggeration to 
call the trustee decision a surprise. 

It had been sought and expected. 
It has brought as much satisfaction 
as excitement, because it came in 
response to the desires and ambi- 
tions of the University community, 
just as much as in response to some 
of the most challenging and ines- 
capable obligations and opportuni- 
ties in educational history. 

Wright Tisdale, chairman of the 
University Board of Trustees, com- 

"There has been a remarkable and 
significant unanimity of opinion both 
on the campus and among members 
of the board that Duke absolutely 
must increase to a very marked 
degree its capacity to serve in every 
area in which it has assumed re- 
sponsibility. No one need be re- 
minded of the staggering multipli- 
cation of human knowledge in less 
than half a generation, or of the 
tremendous demand for highly edu- 
cated men and women generated by 
a civilization of unprecedented com- 

Realization of the aims of the 
program will require a vigorous ef- 
fort to raise the required sums of 
money, and Mr. Tisdale appointed 
seven trustees to a special commit- 
tee charged with formulating spe- 
cific plans and establishing goals for 
the first stages of the effort. George 
V. Allen, '24, was named chairman. 

Five of the other members are also 
alumni and the seventh, Henry E. 
Rauch, chairman of the board of 
Burlington Industries, is the parent 
of an alumnus. 

"The concerns and expressed de- 
sires of former students have been 
quite influential in our planning," 
Mr. Allen said. "The course we have 
set aims rather directly at a stead- 
fast ambition alumni have shared — 
that Duke should be a university 
of national stature, among the 
top few which offer an influential 
degree of educational excellence. We 
have long been aware that the South 
needs such an institution and, in- 
deed, that the nation needs such an 
institution in the South. And I think 
we agree that Duke is in a unique 
position to become that institution." 

Mr. Allen, a native of Durham 
and now president of the Tobacco 
Institute in Washington, D. C, be- 
came one of the nation's top rank- 
ing career diplomats during more 
than 30 years in the diplomatic ser- 
vice. He is one of only 16 Ameri- 
cans to have been named to the per- 
manent rank of career ambassador 
of the United States.

Mr. Tisdale, who is vice president 
and general counsel of Ford Motor 
Company in Detroit, and President 
Knight will serve ex officio. 

The full range of objectives set 
forth in plans for Duke's "decade 
of destiny" will be made known in 
the months ahead through the pages 
of the Register, the News-Register, 
and a number of special publica- 
tions. There will also be a number of 
releases, of course, but a special 
effort will be made to keep alumni, 
parents of students, and other 
closely interested friends particularly 
well informed. 

In releasing a statement to the 
newspapers, President Knight said: 

"This program will enable us to 
retain and attract distinguished 
teachers and scholars, to provide 
larger opportunities for promising 
students with limited financial re- 
sources, to strengthen areas which 
have developed less rapidly than 
our strongest departments, and to 
provide adequate facilities for carry- 
ing on the varied tasks in which we 
must be engaged. 

"While this action deals pri- 
marily with buildings and dollars, 
we should not lose sight of the fact 
that our primary interest is for 
people. In the future, as in the past, 

our physical concerns will be rooted 
in a deeper concern for the indi- 
vidual mind and spirit as these are 
nourished by the University's great 
traditions of disciplined curiosity, 
intellectual rigor, and searching re- 
ligious commitment." 

The President's statement also 
listed a number of specific building 
projects, prefaced by an observa- 
tion that estimates for educational 
buildings totalled $71.5 million, 
including $35.8 million for the Med- 
ical Center; for student residence 
and activity buildings $22.5 mil- 
lion; and for campus improvements 
and service facilities $8.4 million. 

Particularly pressing projects in- 

An addition to the Main Library 
on West Campus, more than dou- 
bling its present capacity, a new 
chemistry building and a new com- 
plex for the College of Engineering, 
an arts center on the Woman's Col- 
lege campus, a major medical and 
administration building, a new 140 
bed hospital, and new graduate and 
undergraduate dormitory additions 
and renovations. 

For student life there will be: 

A new graduate residential cen- 
ter, renovation of the present Men's 
Graduate Living Center for medical 
students, renovation and addition at 
Hanes House, a new Marine Lab- 
oratory dormitory, new outdoor 
recreational facilities, and a new 
student center for the Woman's 

Proposals for the Medical Center 

A hospital chapel, new clinical 
research facilities, renovation of 
Davison (teaching) Building ex- 
tensive hospital renovations and ad- 
ditions, a medical library, and a 
basic medical sciences teaching and 
research building. 

Other projects proposed include 
the following: 

A major addition to the Divinity 
School, a building for an Emperor 
Tandem Accelerator, a marine re- 

search and teaching laboratory at 
Beaufort, a phytotron, physical edu- 
cation facilities for men, a new 
physical education building for wom- 
en, provisions for a plant research 
area, a new Woman's College ad- 
ministration and classroom build- 
ing, renovation of Baldwin Audi- 
torium, the Woman's College Li- 
brary, and Carr and Science Build- 
ings on East Campus; renovation of 
the present Chemistry and Engi- 

neering Buildings to adapt them 
to new purposes. 

Among campus improvements 
and service facilities: 

Renovation of administrative of- 
fices, heating plant modernization, 
land acquisition, a Marine Labora- 
tory seawall, new parking areas and 
roads, a new service center for 
warehouse and maintenance opera- 
tions, and a building for the Duke 


The staggering sum announced as the goal of an expansion and im- 
provement program at Duke University tends to obscure the real ob- 
jective of the program. To undertake an effort to raise $187,000,000 
over a 10-year period immediately becomes the focus of attention. 
But the underlying objective, which the $187,000,000 is intended 
to achieve, is to make of Duke an institution which will provide an 
education equal to that provided anywhere. Put another way, it is 
intended to make Duke one of the top universities of the world, not 
just of the South. 

Such a goal arouses enthusiasm. It is large, but not so large 
that it cannot be reached. It is large enough, however, to challenge the 
zeal and the energies of those who have caught the vision of realizing 
the more basic aim of the effort. Everyone who has caught the vision 
of a Duke University which in popular estimation and by professional 
standards ranks with the top universities of the world is inspired by the 
greatness of the challenge to make that vision a reality. 

Happily Duke does not have to start from scratch to realize the 
objective of this effort. It is already on the way. The standards of aca- 
demic thoroughness were set in little Trinity College years ago. Means 
and facilities kept it from being numbered among the more prominent 
institutions in wealth and size, but a scholarly and dedicated faculty 
saw to it that the quality of education provided was second to none. 

The great impetus which the creation of and contributions from the 
Duke Endowment gave to the growth of a Trinity College expanded 
into Duke University made possible a broader educational offering, but 
faculty and trustees made certain that growth in size was not made 
at the expense of academic standards. 

For some time it has been evident that Duke University has a 
future in academic service and excellence which requires more than even 
the wealthy Duke Endowment can provide. The contributions from 
the Endowment will continue a welcome and substantial nucleus of 
financial support. But Duke needs more to reach the goal toward 
which the generous support of the Duke Endowment has pointed it 
and will continue to help it reach. This is as it should be. The insti- 
tution should outgrow its base of support if it is to flourish to its 
potential. And its potential will continue to keep expanding.

Student Symposium '65 


President Knight delivers the keynote 
address at the opening of the Symposium. 

There exists among us ... a profound convic- 
tion that the South is another land, sharply 
differentiated from the rest of the American na- 
tion, and exhibiting within itself a remarkable homo- 
geneity," wrote W. J. Cash twenty-five years ago in his 
remarkable book, The Mind of the South. Himself a 
Southerner, Cash was one of the first to put his finger on 
some of the South's major contemporary problems. 

Since then others have dealt more explicitly with 
the region and have drawn perceptive conclusions 
about it. In considering the uniqueness of the Southern 
experience British historian Arnold J. Toynbee was 
moved to write: "I remember watching the Diamond 
Jubilee procession myself as a small boy. I remem- 
ber the atmosphere. It was: Well, here we are on the 
top of the world, and we have arrived at this peak to 
stay there — forever! There is, of course, a thing called 
history, but history is something unpleasant that hap- 
pens to other people. We are comfortably outside all 
that. I am sure, if I had been a small boy in New York 
in 1897 I should have felt the same. Of course, if I 
had been a small boy in 1897 in the Southern part of 
the United States, I should not have felt the same; I 
should then have known from my parents that history 
had happened to my people in my part of the world." 
That today's college student is not only aware of 
history that has happened, but also of history that is 
happening was demonstrated recentiy on campus by 
the Duke Student Symposium. Since it began several 
years ago, the Symposium, which is handled entirely 
by students, has tackled some of the major issues of 
today's world. This year's Symposium was no excep- 
tion. If anything, it added a new dimension of im- 
mediacy by dealing with a topic directly related to the 
region surrounding the University. 

"The South in Continuity and Change" was the 
broad title of the Symposium. Stretching over a three- 
day period, it included speeches and discussions on the 
major social, political and economic aspects of the 
South by leading authorities in the various fields. The 
program was carefully engineered to provide students 
with the greatest opportunity not only to hear the

What the real South is and what factors make it what it is today were the focus of 
this year s Student Symposium which brought together six authorities on the South. 

speakers, but to ask questions and to discuss specific 

President Douglas M. Knight delivered the key- 
note address which opened the Symposium. His topic 
was, "Tradition, Freedom, Anarchy: The South and the 
American Dilemma." It was a brilliant and incisive 
exploration of the main philosophical issues of the 
South set in the context of the American experience. 
He pointed to the contrasting relationship between tra- 
dition and freedom — between that of a rigid system 
of responsibility as opposed to the unordered anarchy 
of the self-contained individual. Against this setting 
he contrasted the South's sense of common loyalties 
and intimate community with its reverence for indi- 
vidualism and antilegalism. Thus arises, Dr. Knight 
explained, the dilemma of the South — the poorly under- 
stood yet ever-present racial problem. 

But, Dr. Knight pointed out, the South's problem 
is only a microcosm of an entire world striving for 
civilized order, and the South should not separate 
itself but seek a sense of involvement as it strives to 
cope with its dilemma. 

Race Relations 

Professor Edgar T. Thompson, in his talk on "So- 
cial Change and Race Relations," introduced a per- 
sonal sense of history and reality to the racial question. 
In what he described as a "confession," he related his 
boyhood years on a plantation in South Carolina. He 
told about growing up with other boys, both white and 
Negro, and of their being only vaguely aware of class 
or caste distinctions. In this youthful society, Dr. 
Thompson said, distinguishing features were based 
on achievement. Which boy was the fastest runner, 
the best thrower, or the most accomplished fisherman. 

Then as he grew older, went to college and on to 
graduate school in Chicago, he began to see that the 
adult world used a much more complicated yardstick in 
judging a man. He saw that the Negro, because of the 
color of his skin, did not have the opportunities that 
others had. It was then, Dr. Thompson explained, per-

haps due to his own Southerness and his desire to be- 
come a good sociologist, that he became an outspoken 
champion of Negro rights. Thus he had, in a relatively 
brief time, gone from one extreme to another. 

Since that time, he went on to say, he has returned 
to live and work in the South. This experience, too, had 
taught him something, he said. In reviewing the situa- 
tion as it exists today, he suggested that the Negro 
is all to frequently brought on the stage as an object 
of prejudice or compassion, rather than as an ordinary 
man. Neither of these extremes, just as the extremes in 
his own life experience, is particularly desirable or bene- 
ficial, Dr. Thompson said. 

Though he admires the Negro in his quest for dig- 
nity and equality, he can also sympathize with the white 
man as he struggles to cope with the inevitable changes 
coming upon his traditional way of life. Both Negro 
and white are undergoing an "identity revolution," a 
deeper understanding which can culminate in a stronger 
and more democratic South. 

Southern Politics 

Dr. Allan P. Sindler, associate professor of polit- 
ical science, explored the "New Political Directions of 
the Changing South" in a novel way. Reprints of his 
recent Register article, "The Passing of the Solid 
South," were distributed to the audience. After they 
had had a chance to read it, he began his remarks. 

Tackling first the question, particularly in light of the 
1964 elections, of the "solidness" of the South, Dr. 
Sindler pointed out that the roots of Southern defec- 
tion from the Democratic party go as far back as 1929. 
He emphasized that: "In politics, no less than in love, 
disenchantment must be preceded by enchantment." 
Consequently, present Southern disaffection with its 
traditional party must be viewed in its historical con- 

The Democratic party had given the post-Recon- 
struction South the opportunity to re-establish many of 
its traditional values. By and large, these were con- 
servative values which turned on the interests of the 
white oligarchy. But with Al Smith's candidacy in 
1929, the religious issue was raised and the predom- 
inantly protestant South voted against their standard- 
bearer. Present disaffection, however, has its origins 
in the liberal policies of the Roosevelt New Deal. Dur- 
ing the 30's, Southern conservatives became increas- 
ingly restive, but found it difficult to express themselves 
because of Roosevelt's tremendous popularity. 

By 1948, however, things were different. Harry 
Truman was no FDR, and dissident Southerners saw a 
chance to initiate a larger revolt against the national 
Democratic Party. Thus emerged the Dixiecrat move-

ment which Dr. Sindler believes has ushered in the 
transition period of regional political change we have 

Having witnessed the persistent failure of third- 
party movements, many Southerners have now turned 
to a new technique which Dr. Sindler calls "Republi- 
crat." A Republicrat is a Democrat who votes his own 
party ticket at the local, state and congressional levels, 
but supports the Republican ticket at the presidential 
level. Thus they are reaching for what is to them the 
best of both worlds. 

With the rise of Republican votes in the South in 
recent elections, some observers have come to believe 
that a vigorous two-party system is in the offing. This 
does not appear justified, in Dr. Sindler's view. He 
feels that because of the Republicrat tendency, sub- 
presidential Republican strength in the South will tend 
to remain fairly weak. 

Finally, in commenting on the racial situation he 
was less sanguine than many about the benefits of uni- 
versal Negro suffrage . Though he agreed that it 
would be a big and important step, he pointed out that 
unless there was a real choice between candidates, 
especially at the state, local and congressional levels, 

the Negro might only be choosing between the lesser 
of two evils. 

The Past in the Future 

Dr. John Hope Franklin, professor of history at the 
University of Chicago, brought the perspective of his- 
tory to bear on the problems of the South. A noted 
historian, Dr. Franklin has written extensively on the 
role of the Negro in Southern history. Among his books 
are: From Slavery to Freedom, A History of Ameri- 
can Negroes, and The Emancipation Proclamation. 

"A deep consciousness of its past is as character- 
istic of the South as corn pone and cotton patches," 
Dr. Franklin pointed out. There is, and has been since 
about 1820, more than just a casual interest in the 
region's past. Both laymen and historians have been 
caught up in a "rather excessive interest in the past, 
a somewhat exaggerated posture of examining and 
recapitulating." Southerners in all walks of life "prac- 
ticed the past with a passion." 

Even before the Civil War, Southerners sought to 
maintain their romantic image of the region. They 
looked to history to bolster their claims to greatness

and to justify the institution of slavery. The irony of 
this, according to Dr. Franklin, resulted in their repu- 
diating the natural rights doctrine that their Revolu- 
tionary leaders had written into the Declaration of 
Independence and the Constitution. It lead such men 
as Thomas Cooper of South Carolina to state that "no 
man ever was or ever will be born free." 

The Civil War, with all its tragic implications, 
gave Southerners yet another opportunity to write 
and re-write their own history. Even during the heat 
of the conflict itself, they spent much time and effort 
in telling their story to the world. They spoke passion- 
ately about the "glorious and righteousness of the lost 
cause." They were convinced of the historical validity 
of their fight, and this faith did much to sustain their 

After the war, during the traumatic days of Recon- 
struction and post-Reconstruction, Southerners showed 
a natural lack of interest in surrendering the glory they 
felt was theirs under the old regime. The South, as 

W. J. Cash has said, "yearned backward toward its 
past with passionate longing." Thus in the intervening 
years, writers and historians wrote the history of their 
region as they would like it to have been and were 
vastly uncritical of either facts or fancies. 

Even efforts toward scientific history around the 
turn of the century brought little change in interpreta- 
tion. It seemed that intellectual justification of the 
position of the white Southerner and his society was 
the major goal. Not until the twentieth century were 
any serious attempts made to tell the history of the 
Negro in anything but the most prejudicial fashion. 

The South today has a continuing interest in his- 
tory which suggests that the past plays an important 
part not only in the present but in the future as well. 
Fortunately, today's historians are looking at the 
South's history with more critical eyes. Since 1941, 
when W. J. Cash effectively challenged the South's 
claim to a superior civilization, others have joined in 
re-evaluating Southern history. Among them such

eminent scholars as Bell I. Wiley of Emory and C. 
Vann Woodward, himself a native Southerner, of Yale. 
These new viewpoints are like "fresh winds of change 
blowing across the Southern scene." They suggest that 
history, which had so long been used as a defense 
against change, will become the ally of change and 

The Role of Education 

Dr. Allan C. Cartter, former dean of the graduate 
school at Duke and currently vice president of the 
American Council on Education in Washington, dis- 
cussed "The Role of Education in the Changing 
South." In reviewing the history of higher education in 
the South, Dr. Cartter emphasized the important 
changes that have taken place. "The rise of Duke Uni- 
versity," he said, "in importance and prestige is a 
symbol of the changes taking place in the South." 

The three main functions of collegiate education, 
Dr. Cartter pointed out, are to allow a liberal knowl- 

edge of the legacy of the past, a utilitarian viewpoint of 
the demands of the present and a design for creativity 
in the future. These functions have often been stifled 
or non-existent in the South. Until 1830 there was no 
distinct "South" in education, merely church affiliated 
schools. After 1830, Dr. Cartter went on, the South 
became separated from other regions. Non-conformity 
had no place and the right of dissent disappeared. 

Not until the 1920's did the great universities such 
as Rice, Vanderbilt and Duke begin to appear. The 
University of North Carolina "set the pace for im- 
provement across the South." 

In closing, Dr. Cartter stressed the importance of 
today's Southern universities and called upon them to 
break away from their pattern of regional separation. 
Presidents must be chosen on merit, higher salaries for 
faculties are needed and dynamic administrators should 
be selected regardless of religion or native origin. The 
South must encourage intellectual freedom and improve 
higher education on both public and private levels. 



A chronicle of important events and developments at Duke University 

NSF Graduate Trainees 

Nine graduate students at Duke will 
receive appointments next fall as "Na- 
tional Science Foundation Graduate 
Trainees" under a $46,600 grant an- 
nounced by Dean R. L. Predmore of 
the graduate school. 

According to Dean Predmore, the 
new program is part of a nationwide 
effort by NSF to accelerate the num- 
ber of graduates with advanced de- 
grees in engineering, mathematics and 
the physical sciences. 

The Duke trainees will receive 
$2,400 first-year stipends in addition 
to certain allowances. Seven will do 
full time work in electrical engineer- 
ing, civil engineering, mathematics, 
chemistry or physics. Two others will 
study engineering, mathematics or the 
physical sciences, including biophys- 
ics and biochemistry. 

In making the grants, the Founda- 
tion selected a limited number of in- 
stitutions "whose resources of staff 
and facilities allow for the accom- 
modation of the increased numbers of 
first-year graduate students in full 
time programs of high quality," Dr. 
Predmore said. Duke offers Ph.D. pro- 
grams in each of the major fields in 
which the nine trainees will begin 
working next September. 

Subject to the availability of funds 
for the purpose, the Foundation 
hopes to continue grants made this 
year for periods up to four years. 
Eventually it intends to broaden the 
traineeship program to include all sci- 
ence fields supporteJ by the Founda- 

Better Resources Use 

The University hopes to make bet- 
ter use of its resources through studies 
financed by a $65,000 grant from the 

Esso Education Foundation of New 

Dr. Everett H. Hopkins, vice presi- 
dent for planning and institutional 
studies, will direct the research. The 
studies will be conducted over a two- 
year period. 

The main objective will be to de- 
termine whether student information 
can be centralized and, by use of a 
computer system, be made readily 
available for quick analysis of prob- 
lems. Such information now is in vari- 
ous offices around the campus. 

The first phases of the research will 
be devoted to achieving better sched- 
uling of individual student programs 
and to studying student dropout. 
Eventually, however, an effort will be 
made to develop a systems approach 
to give information and analysis for 
several spheres of University admin- 
istration. It is felt that this would per- 
mit more effective use of faculty, stu- 
dent, financial and physical resources. 

Information will be compiled on 
each student from his first contact 
with the University to the period fol- 
lowing his graduation. This record will 
be put on magnetic tape that can be 
used by an IBM 1401 computer. 

New Dorms Contracted 

The University has awarded con- 
struction contracts for the new $3 
million dormitory complex to be lo- 
cated along Wannamaker Drive on 
West Campus. 

According to John M. Dozier, the 
University's business manager, con- 
tracts were awarded to the low bidders 
following approval by the trustees' 
building and grounds committee. 

The general contract went to C. P. 
Street of Charlotte for $2,187,600. 
Biemau and Rowell of Raleigh re- 
ceived the $537,000 heating, venti- 

lating and air-conditioning contract. 
The electrical contract of $153,750 
went to A & N Electric of Greensboro, 
and the $123,925 plumbing contract 
went to Copelan Plumbing of Dur- 

The total construction costs amount 
to $3,002,275, while costs for the en- 
tire project total $4,031,372. 

The dormitory complex will be 
composed of six houses in two separate 
residence halls, and are designed to 
accommodate 432 students. 

The four story buildings will be 
finished in pre-cast stone panels with 
cast stone trim. The project is sched- 
uled for completion by August 15,

A contract for the construction of a 
new veterinary medicine facility was 
recently awarded to Delta Construc- 
tion of Durham. Of the $172,484 
total, $77,482 are provided by a grant 
from the National Institutes of Health. 

To be located on a 130 acre tract 
on the Duke Homestead property, the 
so-called "animal-farm" will consist 
of a 10,052 square foot laboratory 
animal facility to be used as a quaran- 
tine and conditioning quarters for dogs 
and possibly other animals, according 
to Dr. John C. LeMay, director of the 
department of veterinary medicine. 

The new unit is scheduled to be 
completed by September 1965.

the scholarship commemorates the 
contributions of the school's first dean, 
Dr. Wilbert C. Davison, to medical 
education at the University. 

Dr. E. Croft Long, chairman of the 
selection committee, explained that 
the scholarship was awarded on the 
basis of academic achievement and 
outstanding professional promise. He 
noted that the award enables a prom- 
ising medical student "to broaden his 
experience by observing other view- 
points in a country outside the United 

Last year's Davison Scholar was 
Jack Borden Taylor who studied in 

Zamboanga. In 1963, because of out- 
standing candidates, two scholarships 
were awarded. They were Herbert 
James Herring, Jr., who studied in 
Montevideo, and Michael L. Steer who 
went to Israel. The first Davison 
Scholar in 1962 was Crawford Bar- 
nett, Jr., who studied in England. 

Beetle Fight 

To battle the bark beetle and other 
insects and diseases that afflict South- 
ern forests is a current project at the 
School of Forestry. Funds support- 
ing another year of research and 
training for two graduate assistants 
have again been made available by the 
Southern Forest Disease and Insect 
Research Council. 

According to Dr. R. F. Anderson, 
professor of forest entomology and 

project supervisor for the studies, part 
of the research involves determining 
how varying temperature conditions 
influence the rate of development and 
population growth of tree-killing bark 
beetles. Another project involves the 
study of the life cycle, effectiveness 
and role of certain insects which prey 
on the beetles, thus helping to control 

Both projects supported by the 
Council are part of a larger program 
in which Duke scientists are trying to 
determine why bark beetle population 
and resulting tree infestation and 
mortality fluctuates greatly from time 
to time. 

Dr. Anderson said that variation in 
abundance of insects at different times 
indicates that certain natural condi- 
tions influence beetle destructiveness. 
What factors are involved in these 


Why I decided to go "back to work" at 35 

Charles "Bud" Hoffman (left), the largest Chevrolet dealer in Western Maryland, discusses his new insurance program with New England Life representative Elmer Wingate. 

Back in May of 1963 Elmer Wingate decided to 
change jobs. He was 35, and the idea of a career in life 
insurance appealed to him since he wanted to go into 
business for himself. "After teaching sales and being 
in sales management, I asked myself if I really wanted 
to go back to work," Elmer says, "back to the 'nuts 
and bolts' of face-to-face selling. But I knew that life 
insurance was a business with unlimited potential, 
where a man's income directly reflects his ability." 

Roger Antaya, a New England Life general agent in 
Baltimore, was impressed with Elmer's initiative and 
his background. He hired Elmer and together they 
worked out an on-the-job training program. In just 
14 months Elmer had sold $1,200,000 worth of life 

Elmer likes being in business for himself. He's living 


and working where he wants. " If a man wants to work 
for himself on a limited investment," says Elmer, "and 
has a genuine desire to help people, this business will 
give him all the challenge and reward he wants."

Understanding India 

India is the world's largest democ- 
racy and one of the few nations that 
won her independence peacefully. 
India is also over-populated, stricken 
with poverty and, more often than not, 

A better understanding of India and 
her people is provided by Creighton 
Lacy in his new book, The Conscience 
of India: Moral Traditions in the 
Modern World. 

Dr. Lacy is associate professor of 
World Christianity, and recently spent 
a year's sabbatical leave doing re- 
search in India. In his book, Dr. Lacy 
reveals how the great currents of 

moral, philosophical and political 
thought in India's past are expressed 
in her modern society. A nation of 
great contradiction, she stands between 
East and West. While committed to 
democratic ideals but unable to af- 
ford the luxury of a capitalistic econ- 
omy, India receives communist pres- 
sures from both Russia and China. 

India's life is bound up with re- 
ligion — particularly Hinduism. There- 
fore, the "moral conscience" of the 
nation is being tested when one deals 
with today's political and economic 
problems, Dr. Lacy says. 

He discusses the foundation of 
Hindu ethics back through the Vedas 
of almost 4,000 years ago, across the 
days of the British Raj, Christian mis- 
sions, 19th century reforms and reac- 
tions, the Indian National Congress, 
Gandhi, Sri Ramakrishna and other 
leaders and movements which helped 

chart modern India's course. 

Interviews with some of India's 
greatest leaders, including Nehru, the 
late President Prasad, former Finance 
Minister Desai, President Radha- 
krishnan and others, enable Dr. Lacy 
to give intimate word pictures of the 
Indian conscience as few other West- 
erners are able to do. 

Whither de Gaulle 

We must face the fact that French 
President Charles de Gaulle "will re- 
main our difficult customer for quite 
a few years to come," according to 
Dr. W. W. Kulski, James B. Duke pro- 
fessor of Russian affairs and former 
high-ranking Polish diplomat. 

Regardless of who succeeds de 
Gaulle, certain of his policies will sur- 
vive, Dr. Kulski pointed out. De 
Gaulle envisions Western Europe, led 


by France, as a third great world 
power. In order to realize this goal 
he wants to close the wide gap between 
French power and that of Russia and 
the United States. "What France lacks 
in material power should be supplied 
by the support which other nations are 
expected to provide," Dr. Kulski says. 

De Gaulle's disdain for British and 
American foreign policy shows in 
various ways. He recognizes Red 
China. He continues to develop French 
nuclear power. He courts the under- 
developed nations of Africa and Latin 
America. He rejects Britain's bid to 
enter the European Common Market. 

Dr. Kulski predicts that de Gaulle, 
despite his ability, will not succeed in 
making Western Europe a unified third 
major world power. "De Gaulle con- 
tradicts himself," Dr. Kulski says, 
"when he opposes any supernational 
European government. He wants 
France to retain the power of inde- 
pendent decision." 

Hence, Western European nations, 
whose foreign policies at best can be 
coordinated only through mutual con- 
sultation, will never become a third 
super-power, Dr. Kulski maintains. 

Even so, de Gaulle's achievements 
to date are many. He has made France 
economically and politically strong and 
advanced her military power. When 
de Gaulle came to power in 1958, 
France was called the "sick man of 
Europe." Now, says Dr. Kulski, 
"France is liked less but is respected

The Basketball season ended 
abruptly this year in the ACC tour- 
nament at Raleigh. Though the Blue 
Devils lost their last two regular sea- 
son games (to Maryland, 82-85 and to 
North Carolina, 66-71), they entered 
the tournament as the top-seeded 
team with an 18-4 over-all record 

Their first game against South Car- 
olina was a close call. The Game- 
cocks almost upset Duke in the clos- 
ing seconds but the Blue Devils hung 
on to win 62-60. The next day against 
Wake Forest, Duke played better ball 
to win handily, 101-81. Then came 
the championship game against N. C. 
State. The Blue Devils fought hard 
but State won the game and the ACC 
title, 91-85.

"After seventeen years working for myself — and Mass

rewarding career. It's been rewarding in all respects, 
personally and financially. I'm my own boss, and my 
income is directly related to my accomplishments. 

"Service to my clients, plus participation in civic af- 
fairs and philanthropic activities, have brought me 
great personal satisfaction as well as a standing in my 
community that is equal to that of any professional man 
I know. This, plus the knowledge that I have been in- 
strumental in helping people with their financial plan- 
ning, has comprised the 'extra value' of my insurance 

"Mass Mutual is a company whose policies, reputa- 
tion, character and quality of training are second to 
none. I entered the business in 1947, without capital 
and without selling experience, and have sold over a 
million dollars of individual life insurance every year 
since 1954, reaching a peak of over $7,000,000 last year. 

"What Mass Mutual did for me, it can do for you. So, 
if you're a man who is vaguely dissatisfied with his prog-

I meant to write some time ago to 
thank you for the article entitled 
"Reason Against Racism" which ap- 
peared in one of the recent issues of 
the Register. It was a most interest- 
ing article, bringing out certain facts 
about the South which help in putting 
contemporary events in a bit better 

I think all of us living in the South 
are especially concerned with prob- 
lems relating to race. One hears a 
great deal of "history" on the sub- 
ject and gets quite confused. Such 
scholarly articles as the one I am 
referring to are a big help in differ- 
entiating between fact and fancy. I 
would like to suggest that some more 
articles on the history of the South 
would be welcomed by me, and would 
be appropriate to the North Carolina 
location of the University.

A chronicle of important events and developments at Duke University 

New M.D. Program 

The Medical Center has received 
a $750,000 grant from the Com- 
monwealth Fund of New York to 
help finance a pioneering approach to 
medical education. The new project 
will involve a drastic revision of cur- 
rent medical teaching techniques and 
medical curricula. "It is our hope 
that medical education nationally will 
benefit from the experience gained by 
your school in adopting this new cur- 
riculum," said Quigg Newton, presi- 
dent of the Commonwealth Fund, in 
notifying Duke officials of the award. 

The Duke program will involve the 
first major change in medical school 
curricula in the past 50 years, accord- 
ing to Dr. William G. Anlyan, dean 
of the School of Medicine. He said 
that the objective of this new concept 
will be to turn out more doctors who 
are better trained to bring directly to 
the American public the benefits of 
the massive amount of medical knowl- 
edge now available. The new curric- 
ulum is scheduled to be implemented 
in the first year class of 1966. The 
changeover is expected to be complete 
by 1970. The grant from the Com- 
monwealth Fund will be used to ac- 
quire the faculty members needed to 
launch the new program. 

Essentially, the new curriculum 
will allow medical students to cover 
in two years the same areas it now 
takes them four years to cover. In 
their third and fourth years, they will 
work as a team with faculty members 
for in-depth study of sciences and 
disciplines closely related but separate 
from their chosen branch of medicine. 
They will not really begin training 
for general practice or specialties 
until their intern and residency train- 
ing years. 

Today, medical students spend their 
first two years — more than 1,800 class- 

room hours — in study for basic 
sciences. In their last two years, they 
spend three months in each of the 
major clinical disciplines — obstetrics, 
surgery, pediatrics, internal medicine 
and psychiatry. 

In the new program, the basic sci- 
ences — biochemistry, anatomy, micro- 
biology and so on — will be boiled 
down to essential principles so they 
can be taught in one year. The pro- 
gram will be made possible through 
the development of a "core" concept 
for teaching basic sciences and clinical 
medicine. The emphasis will be on 
conceptual learning rather than 
memorizing of facts — in keeping with 
the massive amount of medical knowl- 
edge now available. 

In their second year under the new 
curriculum, students will spend seven 
weeks in each of the major clinical 
disciplines. Thus, at the end of their 
second year, they will be better pre- 
pared to make a career choice — spe- 
cialist, general practitioner or acade- 
mician — and they will be better 
prepared to evaluate the areas in 
which they need in-depth training. 

Dr. Anlyan indicated that the new 
program also is expected to eliminate 
much of the repetition that now exists 
between medical school and internship 
training. Dr. Barnes Woodhall, vice 
provost of medical affairs at Duke, 
explained that present medical teach- 
ing techniques are based on the Flex- 
ner Report of 1914, a report that 
revolutionized American medical edu- 
cation. But the knowledge available 
to the doctor of 1914 was minute 
compared to that available today, he 
said, and many of the teaching tech- 
niques have become obsolete. "We 
have been studying the new curriculum 
for several years, and we have had 
the benefit of advice from some of the 
top medical minds in America," Dr. 
Woodhall said. 

Computer Vice 

The lust of "Gentle Scholars" for 
using computers has become a vice, 
an educator-author told a Duke audi- 
ence recently. 

Dr. Jacques Barzun, dean of the 
faculties and provost of Columbia 
University, made this charge in his 
address, "A Word Against Cruelty to 

Referring to the use of computers 
in colleges and universities, Dr. Barzun 
declared that in many instances their 
application has been absurd. As an 
example he cited the suggestion that 
Bach's stylistic devices in music could 
be fed into a computer and a new 
composition could be achieved. He 
said he assumed this would be "median 

Computers have also been put to 
work to determine such trivia as how 
often Keats used exclamation marks, 
and the average sentence length of 
Dr. Samuel Johnson's writings, he 

It is good to have computers on 
campus to quickly obtain data on 
which to base policy, Dr. Barzun said. 
But it is wrong to use computers for 
"the illicit desire to avoid thought," 
he declared. "There is an avoidance 
of thought which could be criminal." 

Also, Dr. Barzun said, there are 
certain things computers will never be 
able to do. The machines can't con- 
vey the complications of language. 
They can't convey irony, and they 
can't interpret meaning, he added. 

Computers aren't creative and it 
could mean "the end of our civiliza- 
tion and culture to think you can 
punch cards and get answers to every- 

Forgotten Brazil 

An insight to the problems of Latin 

Jacques Barzun 

America, with special attention to 
Brazil, was recently provided by for- 
mer Brazilian President Juscelino 

Speaking in Page Auditorium last 
month, Kubitschek said that the Free 
World "must realize that a 'forgotten 
Brazil' is bound to be the scene of 
dangerous experiments." 

Moreover, unless all Latin America 
gets "rationally planned help ... all 
liberal and progressive-minded gov- 
ernments will be replaced by dictator- 
ships which will speed up the march 
of desparate masses toward the Chi- 
nese principle of permanent guerilla 
warfare," he said. 

The basic reasons for the outbreak 
of the Cuban revolution are under- 
lying in many other Latin American 
countries, he asserted. "It is always 
worth repeating that the only effective 
way of fighting new risks of explosion 
that may turn to the benefit of Com- 
munism is to favor and intensify the 
rational development of the whole of 
Latin America," the former president 

What is at stake is whether Latin 
America's 200 million people will re- 
main within the Western system or, 
instead, will drift toward the so-called 
"Third Force" countries. These other 
countries "have preferred non-commit- 

Juscelino Kubitschek 

ment or have already walked into the 
Communist bloc." Kubitschek de- 

All Latin America is handicapped 
by a single-crop or single-production 
economy and by booming population 
rate. It is the continent with the 
highest rate of population growth in 
the world, he said. 

"An ill-fed and often idle youth is 
constituting the nucleus of a danger- 
ous situation. It emphasizes the urgent 
need for genuine development." 

He said that, "from a strictly polit- 
ical angle, the Latin American gov- 
ernments have had to choose between 
two major alternatives: reform or 
revolution. Latin Americans generally 
are Christian people who are devoted 
to their fundamental rights to free- 
dom. With the Free World's help, they 
can solve their problems." 

High Goldwater 

Dean Burch, on the final legs of 
his National Republican chairman- 
ship, told a Duke audience last month 
that Sen. Barry Goldwater's ideas, 
described as "reckless and irrespon- 
sible" during the presidential cam- 
paign, now enjoy the "dignity of high 
(Democratic) policy." 

Dean Burch 

He claimed that Goldwater's ideas 

— The use of conventional weapons 
only on Viet Cong supply lines to 
punish the "real aggressors in South- 
east Asia." 

— The plan for aid to education by 
means of tax credits and tax rebates 
to the states. 

— The use of diplomatic recogni- 
tion as a Cold War tactic. 

According to Burch, Senator Gold- 
water was eager to debate the real 
political issues. However, ". . . it 
takes two to make an effective debate, 
and President Johnson wasn't having 
any," he said. 

"With everything going for him, 
why rock the boat by discussing is- 
sues, some of which were bound to 
backfire between August and Novem- 
ber?" Burch asked. 

Americans are still faced with the 
issues that existed during the presi- 
dential race, he said. These include 
the prosecution of the war in Viet 
Nam, our outflow of gold, securing 
for all the rights of first-class citizen- 
ship, persistent unemployment, and of 
the future course of our nation and 
of its Constitutional system. The last 
may be the greatest issue, he said. 

Had he been Democratic National 
Chairman, Burch said, "I too, would 

have stuck to a few wholly synthetic 

Duke Papers 

Angier Biddle Duke, now serving as 
United States Ambassador to Spain 
and for the past four years Chief of 
Protocol in the State Department 
under Presidents Kennedy and John- 
son, has given his personal papers 
relating to his public service to Duke 

Included are more than 3,500 items. 
They will form the core for the 
Angier Biddle Duke Collection being 
established in the library. 

Also included are 393 photographs. 
Among them are two autographed 
photos of President Johnson, one of 
which reads: "To Angier Biddle 
Duke, the man who keeps us from 
walking on two left feet." 

The official correspondence, memo- 
randa and reports contain some 
originals and many copies, the orig- 
inals of which went to the Depart- 
ment of Archives and History in 
Washington. Some of the items have 
been classified for periods of up to 12 
years, and others until declassified by 
official action at some future date. 
Included among the classified docu- 
ments is a copy of a 100-page paper 
on Ambassador Duke's association 
with President Kennedy. The paper, 
in question-and-answer form, was 
done at the request of the John F. 
Kennedy Library in Boston. 

On receiving the papers President 
Douglas M. Knight said: "I am 
delighted to announce the gift of these 
important papers to the Duke Library. 
Future generations of scholars will 
find in them a rich storehouse of 
information relating to the conduct of 
personal diplomacy at the highest 
level and the very important role of 
protocol in foreign relations. Cer- 
tainly these papers also will provide 
some new insights into the lives of the 
world's leaders during this period. 
We feel it both fortunate and appro- 
priate that this deeply significant 
collection be established at Duke Uni- 

Ambassador Duke is a member of 
the University's founding family. The 

University was named in honor of his 
great-grandfather, Washington Duke. 
Both the ambassador's father, the late 
Angier B. Duke, and his son, Angier 
St. George Biddle Duke, attended

Lederle Award 

Dr. Howard K. Thompson, Jr. has 
won the $30,000 Lederle Medical 
Faculty Award for 1965-66. Dr. 
Thompson holds the academic ranks 
of associate in medicine and associate 
in physiology at the Medical Center. 

The award is presented each year 
to about a dozen outstanding young 
educators from medical schools in the 
United States and Canada. Its pur- 
pose is to "provide opportunities for 
development of promising individuals 
as full-time faculty members and to 
provide recognition and incentive for 
outstanding clinical teachers and 
scholars." Announcement of the 
award to Dr. Thompson was made by 
Dr. William G. Anlyan, dean of the 
School of Medicine. Dr. Anlyan said 
that the Lederle clinical awards were 
conceived as an aid to medical schools 
in providing highly qualified people of 
demonstrated ability in teaching and 
research for teaching in clinical medi- 
cal disciplines such as surgery, 
medicine, obstetrics and so on. 

He also noted that the awards are 
particularly aimed at encouraging edu- 
cators especially trained to integrate 
with medicine the knowledge and 
principles of the biological sciences in 
order to maintain highest standards 
of patient care. 

Commonwealth Gift 

A gift from one of its English pro- 
fessors has placed the University 
among the handful of American uni- 
versities with major holdings of British 
Commonwealth literature. 

Dr. Lionel Stevenson, James B. 
Duke Professor of English, gave the 
Library some 500 books, mostly 
poetry and fiction by Canadian 
authors. Most are first editions, pub- 
lished in Canada. 

Included are such major Canadian 

authors as Bliss Carman, Charles C. 
D. Roberts, Duncan C. Scott, Wil- 
son MacDonald, E. J. Pratt, and 
Frederick P. Grove. In addition to 
the fiction and verse, the collection 
includes works in literary criticism, 
drama, essays, travel and history. 

Now housed in the Rare Book 
Room, much of the collection is by 
authors not widely known outside the 
Commonwealth. Library authorities 
say many of the Canadian authors 
may not be represented in any other 
American library. 

Duke's Commonwealth Studies Pro- 
gram for 10 years has built up the 
library's holdings of Commonwealth 
authors in the fields of politics, eco- 
nomics and history. However, it has 
not been concerned with literature for 
its own sake. The Stevenson Col- 
lection helps fill this gap. 

Dr. Stevenson, himself an author 
and biographer, came to Duke from 
the University of Southern California 
in 1955. In 1964, he was named 
chairman of the English department 
at Duke. He began his collection of 
Canadian literature half a century ago 
while a high school student in British 

While studying at the Universities of 
British Columbia and Toronto, Steven- 
son expanded his collection. It was 
the basis for his own published work, 
Appraisals of Canadian Literature, in 

Many of the volumes have hand- 
written inscriptions by the authors. 
Among the most interesting are the 
books by Wilson MacDonald. They 
contain the author's own hand- 
colored decorations and penned in- 
scriptions, according to Dr. Benjamin 
Powell, Duke Librarian. 

Early works in the collection are 
the first anthology of Canadian poetry, 
Selections from Canadian Poets, edited 
by E. H. Dewart in 1864; The St. 
Lawrence and the Saguenay, by the 
earliest noteworthy Canadian poet, 
Charles Sangster (1856); and Dream- 
land and other Poems, (1868) by 
Charles Mair. 

The Mair work is considered the 
first literary work of the Canadian 
"national" school. It was autographed 

by the author to Dr. Stevenson almost 
60 years after its publication. 

Medicine S elf-Taught 

What's going to happen to the class- 
room teacher if Dr. J. E. Markee's 
concept of self-teaching movies really 
catches on? 

The new approach to education 
would aim at teaching students a 
single concept at a time by means of 
short sound films which the student 
could check out in the library like a 

Dr. J. E. Markee regards the short- 
film route to education as a real 
break-through, but he can only guess 
at its implications since pioneering ef- 
forts have been limited to medical 
education. Dr. Markee is chairman of 
the department of anatomy as well as 
James B. Duke professor of anatomy. 

Speaking in Atlanta recently, he un- 
folded 20 years of research, took a 
look into the future and cited present 
problems confronting educators who 
would hurry the plan into action. 

Dr. Markee told teachers and re- 
searchers attending the "Conference 
on Single-Concept Teaching Films" 
that he could see a brilliant future for 
the new films, but added, "I don't 
think they are ready for general use 
yet." He explained that the new 
technique has been used so far only 
on an experimental basis. And his 
own experiments have been limited to 
the teaching of anatomy to medical 
students at Duke dating back into the 
early 1940's. Refinements and im- 
provements in the techniques and in 
equipment will mean a wide applica- 
tion of single concept films in the 
classroom, Dr. Markee thinks. 

An automatic eight-millimeter sound 
projector is the heart of the system as 
it is now conceived. Made available 
in a special section of the library, the 
projector is fed a small, plastic, sealed 
cartridge containing the desired film. 
A single button starts the action and 
a single button stops and rewinds the 
film into the cartridge which will 
again be stored for reference by an- 
other student. 

Pilot models, Dr. Markee reports, 

are already simple enough that they 
can be operated by a six-year-old. He 
describes present projectors as look- 
ing very much like portable TV sets 
and says the plastic cartridge is just 
a little larger than a copy of Readers 

The short films are used by students 
without supervision in special cubicles 
provided in the library area, just as 
they would use a library book. 

"Twenty-five years ago our goal was 
increased personalized teaching," Dr. 
Markee says. Now he suggests, this 
goal may now be outdated. "Perhaps 
we should say that increased mechani- 
zation of learning procedures should 
gradually replace medical teachers." 

Digging the Ruins 

Duke University and University of 
North Carolina students will work to- 
gether again this summer on the Win- 
chester Excavations Project in the 
ancient capital of England. 

Wielding trowels and brushes, they 
will collaborate with British, Euro- 
pean and other American students in 
peeling off the layers of Winchester's 
history from Elizabethan times back 
to Roman. 

Sir Walter Raleigh was tried for 
treason in the Castle at Winchester. 
William the Conqueror ruled Eng- 
land from his palace there. Alfred 
and other Saxon kings were buried in 
a church being excavated. 

Modern urban renewal is laying 
bare the available sites in this city of 
27,000 persons. Teams of workers, 
directed by archeologist Martin Biddle 
of the University of Exeter, move in 
to collect evidence before deep foun- 
dations go down for new buildings. 
One of last summer's sites will hold 
the new Post Office. Another is being 
used for an extension to the Assize 

Prominent supporters of the project, 
in addition to the two universities 
here, are the Ministry of Works, the 
British Museum, the Hampshire 
County Council, and the City Council. 
Local authorities have sponsored 
excavations since 1953, when a 
Roman mosaic pavement was found. 

Sites are mapped out for investigation 
over the next five years. This year's 
season will last from June 20 to Au- 
gust 30. 

Nearly 190 students at one time 
were working at the height of the 
season last summer. Seventy-five were 
undergraduate and graduate students 
and faculty from the U.S. and 
Canada. All participants live in a 
former army barracks. Each one pays 
the fare to and from Winchester, and 
receives free lodging and subsistence 
while at work. A two-week holiday is 
allowed for sight-seeing in the British 
Isles or on the Continent. 

Co-chairmen for the Joint Com- 
mittee of the two universities for the 
project are Duke Vice Provost Dr. 
Frank T. de Vyver and Dr. George 
Holcomb of UNC. 

Scholars Selected 

Seventeen outstanding high school 
seniors from the Carolinas, and Vir- 
ginia have won Angier B. Duke 
Scholarships to the University. The 
awards are worth up to $10,400 each 
for four years of undergraduate stud- 
ies. Duke has no scholarships that 
are more valuable. Winners include 
1 1 North Carolinians, four South 
Carolinians, and two Virginians. 

The scholarships were awarded fol- 
lowing three days of competition here 
by 85 finalists. Winners were selected 
solely on the basis of merit. The 
scholarships become effective next fall. 

Candidates were judged by faculty 
committees, which evaluated each stu- 
dent's academic standing, basic abili- 
ties, leadership, college aptitude, and 
other factors. All contestants were 
interviewed and given various tests. 

The amount each winner will re- 
ceive depends largely upon his family's 
financial circumstances. 

The winners are: 

North Carolina — Gary S. Niess, 
Tracy Margaret Whittaker, and Robert 
G. McKenzie, Charlotte; Ronald E. 
Kirby and Mary Elizabeth Evans, 
Asheville; Neil A. Big, Fort Bragg; 
Julia Ada Woodruff, Durham; Vir- 
ginia Anne Davis, Jacksonville; John 
T. Whitted, Winston-Salem; Graham 

E. Quinn, Greenville; and Thomas W. 
Lassiter, Smithfield. 

South Carolina — James d'Alvigny 
McCullough, Honea Path; Joseph E. 
Dye, Anderson; Randolph W. Shan- 
non III, Society Hill; and Deborah 
Lynn Smith, Greenville. 

Virginia — Arthur L. Bowling, 
Lynchburg, and David R. Shupe, Mc- 

Medical Chapel 

Plans for a Medical Center Chapel 
were announced recently by Dr. 
Barnes Woodhall, vice provost for 
medical affairs. 

To be located directly behind the 
present main hospital lobby, in an 
area which is now a courtyard, the 
chapel is expected to cost approxi- 
mately $250,000. "This is one of the 
many efforts we are making to provide 
more complete patient care," Dr. 
Woodhall said. 

Planned with the patient's family 
and friends in mind, the chapel com- 
plex is designed to provide quietness, 
privacy and compassion, away from 
the rush of hospital activities. The 
religious center will include a prayer 
chapel, family meditation rooms, pas- 
toral counseling rooms, a patient 
lounge and offices of the chaplains. 

Cost of construction will be paid 
out of memorial gifts to the chapel 
project. Contributions to the fund 
now total more than $50,000 which 
includes a single memorial fund of 
$25,000 from one North Carolina 
family. It is estimated that beginning 
of construction is still more than one 
year away. 

Most JVilson Scholars 

With 14 recipients, Duke has the 
largest number of winners of Wood- 
row Wilson National Fellowships in 
Region V of the nation. Six are 
North Carolinians. 

Tied for second place in Region V 
are the University of North Carolina 
at Chapel Hill and the University of 
Virginia, with 10 each. Region V in- 
cludes Delaware, Maryland, District 
of Columbia, West Virginia, Virginia 
and North Carolina. 

Duke's North Carolina winners are 
Susan B. Appleton and Linda Orr, 
both of Charlotte; Robert D. Carlitz, 
Durham; Jerry O. Cook, Mebane; 
Mrs. Irene G. Lopp, Greensboro; and 
Kathryn A. Vale, Goldston. 

The other Duke recipients are 
Ernest J. Branscomb, Chattanooga, 
Tenn.; Leanore A. Dreisinger, Shaker 
Heights, Ohio; Lynn Etheridge, Ridge- 
field, Conn.; Margaret A. Gilliland, 
Jacksonville, Fla.; James R. Sites, Oak 
Ridge, Tenn.; Mary C. Tarpley, 
Dallas, Tex.; Stanley S. Ward, Roa- 
noke, Va.; and Heather J. Low, 
Natrona Heights, Pa. 

The Foundation will provide tui- 
tion and fixed fees of winners at the 
graduate school of their choice. Each 
will get an additional $1,800 for 
living expenses, and allowances will 
be provided for those with children. 

"Less than one-third of the college 
teachers we need are being produced 
today," Foundation President Sir 
Hugh Taylor said in announcing the 
awards. Within four years, enroll- 
ments are expected to double, com- 
pounding the problem, he added. 

Since 1958, the Ford Foundation 
has supported the fellowship program 
with two grants totaling $52 million. 
It is the nation's largest private source 
of support for advanced work in 
liberal arts. 

Peaceful Atoms 

Using nuclear explosions to perform 
massive excavation jobs such as open- 
ing harbors and building canals may 
sound like science fiction, but it isn't. 

Dr. Aleksandar Vesic, professor of 
civil engineering at the University, 
is evolving a theory which may make 
excavation by explosion feasible. 

Though still incomplete, Dr. Vesic's 
theory will help engineers predict the 
size and shape of craters formed by 
nuclear explosions. One specific use 
for such a large scale excavation tech- 
nique might be the new isthmian canal 
in Central America. 

The Duke project is sponsored by 
the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways 
Experiment Station and the Nuclear- 
Cratering Group of Lawrence Radia- 
tion Laboratory in Livermore, Cali- 

fornia. The project is similar to one 
headed by Dr. Vesic at Georgia Insti- 
tute of Technology before coming to 
Duke last year. It is part of Atomic 
Energy Commission's "Plowshare" 
program aimed at achieving peaceful 
uses of atomic energy. 

An authority in soil mechanics and 
foundation engineering, Dr. Vesic is 
a native of Yugoslavia who recently 
became an American citizen. He has 
directed numerous research projects 
in soil structure interaction, mechanics 
of pavement, large-span bridge design, 
and site investigations for large earth- 
en dams. 

The New Europe 

Western Europe is willing to accept 
an equal partnership with United 
States-British alliance but not subor- 
dination, according to Dr. Joel G. 
Colton, professor of history at the 
University. Speaking to the delegates 
at the annual campus conference on 
teaching the social studies, Dr. Colton 
described Europe today as "ebullient, 
self-confident, self-assertive." 

For several years after World War 
II, the two great super-powers, Rus- 
sia and the United States, "confronted 
each other over the smoldering ruins 
of the European continent," he said. 
Now things are different. Soviet satel- 
lities have become more independent, 
Red China has hurled a political- 
ideological challenge to Moscow, new 
Asian and African nations have shown 
vocal self-consciousness and Western 
Europe has become strong, Dr. Colton 

For these reasons, the influence 
of both the United States and Russia 
has decreased. "The United States 
gave the initial impulse to the eco- 
nomic recovery and integration of 
Europe that not only restored the 
continent but created a new dynamic 
competitor to itself," Dr. Colton 
noted. He cited the Marshall Plan 
that put millions of American dollars 
into Western Europe. 

"What in 1945, or even in 1949, 
could have predicted that between 
1950 and 1960 the nations of con- 
tinental Europe would experience a 
rate of economic growth almost double 


competitor to itself," Dr. Colton 
asked. "If in the initial reason for that 
recovery, it can only be noted that 
gratitude has never been one of the 
laws of nations," he said. 

Signs indicate that a United States 
of Europe is far off. He noted, how- 
ever, that "a majority in public opinion 
polls in the Common Market coun- 
tries have recorded their endorsement 
of a common foreign policy." Both 
the United States and Western Europe 
are dedicated to the goal of world 
peace, "despite differences that are 
bound to increase as Europeans shake 
off a tutelage that they consider out- 

Nuclear Research 

The 15-year partnership in nuclear 
research between the University and 
the Atomic Energy Commission will 
continue next year under a $546,000 
grant for investigating nuclear struc- 
tures and forces. 

Announcement of the renewal was 
made recently by Professor Henry W. 
Newson, head of the nuclear structure 
laboratory in the physics department, 
and one of America's leading scien- 
tists in the field of experimental atom- 
ic physics. 

Dr. Newson indicated that the 
grant will provide approximately 
$309,000 in new research operating 
funds, and about $225,000 for new 
electronic computing equipment. The 
new computers will be used to analyze 
data from experiments conducted on 
the University's three million and 
five million electron volt Van de 
Graaff accelerators. 

These accelerators, which are used 
to study nuclear interactions involving 
light, intermediate and heavy nuclei, 
are a major source of data on atomic 
activity. The goal of the Duke re- 
searchers is the discovery of regulari- 
ties in behavior which may enlarge 
their knowledge of the structure of 
nuclei and the nature of nuclear

Celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year the Alumni Register has 
chronicled the history of the University from little Trinity College through 
its momentous years of expansion and development to a great institution. 

Several million words ago in the history of the 
Alumni Register, the first issue appeared. Now 
this may be an odd way to measure time, but if 
you were to add all those words together they would 
take you back exactly fifty years. The year was 1915, 
the month was April. 

World War I was still a distant drum and only a 
vague threat to this part of the world, but connections 
were beginning to be established. Ben Muse ex' 18 
had already served as a newspaper reporter in the 
Mexican border conflict, and had gone on to England 
to enlist in the King's Royal Rifles. The Lusitania was 
still a month away from being torpedoed, and jazz 
musicians were swinging to W. C. Handy's "St. Louis 
Blues." Gene Stratton Porter's Michael O'Halloran 
was the year's best seller, and business, stimulated by 
war orders, was booming. 

On the quiet campus of Trinity College, William 
Preston Few was in his fifth year as president and the 
College was looking forward to celebrating its twenty- 
fifth anniversary in Durham two years hence. One of 
the major building projects on campus was the con- 
struction of a "handsome, modern stone wall" around 
the College. It was the gift of Benjamin N. Duke, and 
remains today the principal boundary of East Campus. 
It was in this setting that the first issue of the mag- 
azine appeared. It was named the Trinity Alumni Reg- 
ister, because one of its first projects was to publish a 
list of former students. This list, or "Register" as it 
was called, was the result of several years of effort 
by a committee under the direction of M. T. Plyler '92. 
Since the disastrous fire of 1911 that destroyed the 
Washington Duke building ("Old Main") had also 
destroyed all records, the committee had to start from 
scratch. With the publication of the first group of 
names they also called upon readers to send in cor- 
rections and additions. This project continued for the 
first year of the magazine's existence until as complete 
a list as possible could be obtained. 

But the magazine was concerned with many other 
things. From the outset, the editors included a variety 


of articles dealing with the history of the college and 
with current developments. President Few, in that first 
issue, sent greetings to the alumni and hailed the new 
publication as "a most significant event in the history 
of Trinity College." 

He went on to say: "It will be a permanent medium 
of communication between the College and her sons. 
As such it will be helpful to the College and to the 
alumni. The alumni can now have full information 
concerning what goes on at the College and so can 
follow all its development as well as keep track of each 
other. The College on the other hand can keep in 
close and constant touch with all her former students. 
And the College is very anxious that all its influence 
shall never pass out of the life of anyone who has 
studied here even for a short while." 

The lead article in the first issue was "Braxton 
Craven and the First State Normal School" by Pro- 
fessor E. C. Brooks '94. Following it was a senti- 
mental memoir on "Trinity College Ante Bellum" by 
Col. James Reid Cole '61 of Dallas, Texas, a confed- 
erate veteran. C. R. Warren '06 contributed "Mem- 
ories of the Old Inn," and Professor William K. Boyd 
'97 wrote "The Trinity Historical Society: A Record 
and an Appeal." 

And under the heading of "Editorial Notes" was 
the following statement outlining the purpose and 
scope of the new magazine: 

"This is the first issue of the Trinity Alumni Reg- 
ister. It is published by a committee appointed from 
the Trinity College Alumni Association by order of 
the Association at the annual meeting in June, 1914. 
It is supported by subscriptions of the alumni and be- 
gins publication with a large subscription list already 
pledged. The size of the publication will vary between 
sixty-four and eighty pages quarterly. The subject mat- 
ter will consist of contributed articles of interest to the 
sons and daughters of Trinity, of campus notes telling 
what is taking place at the College, of letters from the 
local alumni associations, of alumni notes giving cur- 
rent information regarding former students, and of 

articles of general and special interest. One very im- 
portant feature for the first few issues will be the di- 
rectory of Trinity alumni compiled from the informa- 
tion Prof. Flowers as chairman of the alumni execu- 
tive committee has received from inquiries mailed each 
alumnus last Christmas. We publish in this number all 
the information received before March 15, regarding 
alumni who were in college during the presidencies of 
Dr. Craven and Dr. Wood, except information regard- 
ing alumni now dead, which will be published later. 
Additional information received from time to time re- 
garding these alumni, together with information regard- 
ing alumni who have been students during the admin- 
istrations of Presidents Crowell, Kilgo, and Few will 
be published in succeeding numbers of the Register." 
This was an ambitious undertaking. The first is- 
sue ran to 88 pages in a book size format. Circula- 
tion can only be guessed at, but five years later, in 
reviewing the success of the publication, the editor 
said that in the beginning it was estimated that 400 

subscribers were needed for success and that about 
twice that many had bsen secured. Ten years later, 
the Register was advertising a circulation of over 4,000. 

Since there was no masthead in those days, it is a 
little difficult to tell who the editors were. However, 
the best guess is that Professor Holland Holton of the 
education department was the first editor and that he 
was succeeded in 1917 by Clifford Hornaday who con- 
tinued as editor until he became president of Davenport 
College in 1922. 

In 1923, Richard E. Thigpen '22 became alumni 
secretary and editor of the magazine. Assisted by Banks 
Arendell '17, Mr. Thigpen changed the format of the 
magazine and launched it on a monthly publication 
schedule that is still in effect today. 

But the real value of the magazine lies in the story 
it tells of the growth and development of the institu- 
tion. Reading those early issues is an exciting histori- 
cal experience. From the beginning, it is apparent that 
the leaders of that time were intensely dedicated men. 


They were devoted to the ideals embodied in the 
founding of the College, and moved consistently along 
a path toward strengthening the institution. They were 
men who knew what they wanted and knew how to 
go about getting it. 

Wade Harris, editor of the Charlotte Observer noted 
in a 1916 editorial that: "Trinity College may not get 
everything it asks for, but when there is a failure it 
may be safely set down that the thing wanted was un- 
necessary. This is as much as saying that Trinity Col- 
lege comes nearer getting everything it wants than any 
other institution in the South." 

This may have been a somewhat optimistic apprais- 
al, but it was nonetheless true that little Trinity College 
was on the move. It was growing, modestly in compari- 
son to later events, yet substantially. It had the sup- 
port of the community and the recognition of the re- 

Wars, however, have a way of interrupting things, 
and World War I was no exception. When the United 
States entered the conflict in April of 1917, Trinity 
College already had a military training group going. 
Under Annapolis graduate William Hall, who was 
teaching civil engineering at the College, the group had 
begun training earlier in the year. When war was 
declared, Trinity men responded to the call and Presi- 
dent Few wrote in his annual report that June: "The 
first call to the students came in the opportunity to 
offer themselves for the training campus of the Officers' 
Reserve Corps. To this call practically every man in 
the senior class who could or ought to go responded, 
and many from other classes; and most of them re- 
ceived orders to go." 

Besides the depleted enrollment, other effects of 
the war were soon noticeable on campus. A sizeable 
area that had been planned for landscaping was given 
over to a "liberty garden" and planted with corn, po- 
tatoes, soy beans and other vegetables. This action 
was praised by the Charlotte Observer in an editorial 
entitled "Practical Trinity." 

When the College opened that fall there were 
fewer students than there had been in a number of 
years. It was, in fact, the first year since the Register 
began publication that enrollment had not increased. 
But the reason was self-evident, and the pages of the 
magazine began to carry letters from alumni in mili- 
tary camps and, later, from "somewhere in France." 

It was thus under circumstances of war that Presi- 
dent Few wrote his annual report to the board of 
trustees in 1917. But it was an especially fascinating 
report because Dr. Few reviewed the 25 years of 
Trinity College in Durham. This report was published 
in the July, 1917 Register and, after discussing the 
current year, begins a broad discussion of the move to 


Durham and the developments since that time. It is 
a valuable document of the period and provides a close 
insight to the growth of the College. 

It documents the steady growth in enrollment — 
from 164 in 1892 to 570 in 1917 — and in faculty, 
from 16 to 59. It recounts the steady, purposeful 
growth in buildings and facilities. The same is true 
of the endowment. As Dr. Few says, "Twenty-five 
years ago the College had an endowment of $23,- 
692.94, which was more than offset by a bonded in- 
debtedness of $40,000. Today the endowment amounts 
to $1,600,306.12 with do debt. . . ." 

In another significant section dealing with public 
opinion, Dr. Few says that the College's fight for "free- 
dom of speech and freedom of action in politics" has 
been at once the most difficult and "far-reaching in 
public good." He goes on to say, ". . . here as every- 
where else and in every form, freedom had to be fought 
for and sacrificed for. Against political coercion and 
against the shackles of provincialism, Trinity College 
has been called upon to fight and at times to make 
great sacrifices. For the right and duty of the College 
to enter freely into discussion of all public questions 
was resisted by some of the most prominent men in 
the State." 

Dr. Few also paid tribute to the alumni who had 
been such an important asset to the College in those 
years of growth, and described their support and 
friendship as "correspondingly pure gold." 

Those same alumni, the editor of the Register was 
pleased to report that year, had tripled the original 
subscription list of the magazine. This meant that 
about 1200 alumni were receiving the Register, but he 
issued a special plea to his readers to help him keep up 
with address changes caused by "the unsettled condi- 
tions of the country just at this time. . . ." Later on 
the editor reported that: "By our computation 1,029 
Trinity alumni have been in war service," and that 
twenty had given their lives. 

But, mercifully, wars do not last forever, and with 
the end of World War I a new spirit of endeavor was 
felt on the Trinity campus. Several projects that had 
languished during the war years were attacked with re- 
newed vigor. Funds for the Alumni Memorial Gym- 
nasium and the Southgate Memorial Building that had 
been partially subscribed before the war were soon 
fully subscribed by alumni with the generous help of 
the Duke family. Football, after an absence of almost 
25 years, was again put on the athletic schedule. And, 
in the spring of 1920, a full time alumni secretary was 
employed for the first time. He was B. W. Barnard 
'15, who had recently returned from France. Enroll- 
ment began to push upward, and within a brief span 
of time was nearing the 1,000 mark. 

It was an exciting period for Trinity and contrasted 
sharply with the quieter pre-war days. Nothing, how- 
ever, hints of the events of 1924 and the Duke In- 
denture. Both James and Benjamin Duke were sub- 
stantial contributors to the College, as they had been 
for some time. The College was getting along well, 
and promised to continue growing at a steady pace. 
The foundations had been well laid, and the College 
seemed to be developing as rapidly as anyone might 

The Register too, was growing up. In 1923 under 
the editorship of Richard E. Thigpen '22, it embarked 
upon a monthly publication schedule. The format was 
changed from the old journal style to an enlarged page 
size and a more modern magazine style. Photographs, 
which had been scarce in the early issues, were used 
more frequently. Sports coverage, which had been in- 
troduced only recently, was also expanded to meet the 
greatly increased interest. Advertising was consider- 
ably increased also, and so encouraging was the reve- 
nue that by the December issue the editor was saying: 
"Read it and enjoy it, and don't feel that you will 
receive a request for a subscription to it, or that you 
will be sent the usual bill next spring. The Register 
is almost self-supporting. . . ." 

By the following July, President Few praised the 
growth of alumni activities in his annual report, and 
announced that the Register was being sent free to 
all former students. He commended the magazine and 
its editor for stimulating much of the increased ac- 
tivity. This was indeed a significant step forward for 
the magazine. It meant that circulation had increased 
to well over 4,000 copies per issue. 

Yes, 1924 was a great year for the College. En- 
rollment had grown to 1200, and more than 300 were 
women. The new gymnasium had been dedicated, and 
Howard Jones had been hired as football coach. Yet 
even the most careful reading of those issues, including 
December, contain no clues of the major changes 
about to take place. The December issue still carried 
the bold Caslon logotype Trinity Alumni Register, and 
otherwise looked the same as the preceding issues. 

But January 1925 burst forth with some major 
changes. The cover was noticeably different. An 
elaborate new logotype announced The Alumni Register 
of Duke University in Old English type. The lead 
article was headed "Duke University" and read: "The 
Board of Trustees of Trinity College wrote an im- 
portant chapter in the history of Trinity College and in 
North Carolina education on December 29, when the 
gift of Mr. James B. Duke was accepted and Trinity 
College became the nucleus around which the greater 
Duke University will be created. Since the announce- 
ment of the creation of the Trust Fund of Forty Mil- 

lion Dollars by Mr. Duke, speculation has been rife 
as to the action the Board would take, but in view of 
the opportunity for greater usefulness and the unusual 
nature of the gift, there was but one wise and sane 
course open to the Board and it has followed this 
course to the satisfaction of the large body of alumni 
and alumnae. 

"Already endowed with millions, largely the bene- 
factions of members of the Duke family, and equipped 
with several modern buildings, Trinity College passes 
from the fold of the "richest colleges below the Po- 
tomac" to the small circle of richly endowed and fully 
equipped universities of the country. The development 
of Duke University will be started immediately and 
within a few years a well organized institution will be 
functioning in every department." 

The rest of the issue is given to descriptions of the 
Duke Endowment and the Indenture, to the action of 
the board of trustees, to the pleased reactions of alumni 
and friends and the comments of the press. The editor 
of the Register paid special tribute to James B. Duke 
as "one of Nature's finest noblemen." 

President Few issued an appeal to alumni: "Let 
us all keep faith with the past — with all our past; let 
us preserve all the good that has come to us out of our 
rich and varied history. Let us be equally loyal to the 
future; and give everything that is in us to every one of 
the causes of this expanding institution, to the end 
that, all working together, we may proceed promptly 
to the building up of a great university here — in very 
fact one of the great educational foundations of our 

And so it began. As plans progressed and build- 
ings started the Register reported the developments. 
December 11, the day James B. Duke signed the In- 
denture, became Founder's Day for the University. 
Dr. Ralph Sockman delivered the address at the open- 
ing of the School of Religion. The football team won 
more games, though still losing to Carolina (6-0), but 
the Register boasted that the days of losing 41-0 were 

By this time the magazine became well established 
and continued to grow and develop with the University. 
In 1930, when Henry R. Dwire '02 became editor, 
West Campus was occupied for the first time. The 
student body had increased substantially, and solid aca- 
demic programs were being offered in a variety of 
fields. The "new day" had indeed dawned, and the 
Alumni Register had performed its job well. 

It has continued to do so since, and is today one of 
the oldest alumni magazines in the country. Its history 
is the history of Trinity and Duke, and it forms a 
valuable chronicle of one of the most exciting eras in 
American higher education. 





Floyd Riddick: 


What is it like to be parlia- 
mentarian of the United 
States Senate? "It's like 
keeping store — it may be quiet for 
a long time, then all hell breaks 
loose," says the new Senate Parlia- 
mentarian Floyd M. Riddick '32, 
Ph.D. '35. 

Sitting in his quiet office on the 
ground floor of the Capitol's Sen- 
ate wing, Dr. Riddick talked easily 
about his new position. And there 
was every reason that he should. 
He had served a 13 year apprentice- 
ship as assistant to Charles L. Wat- 
kins, the Senate's first parliamen- 
tarian, before taking over the job 
with the opening of the new ses- 
sion of Congress in January. Mr. 
Watkins, a Senate employee for 
more than half a century and parlia- 
mentarian since 1937 when the post 
was created, had retired at the last 
session of the Senate. 

Explaining in his mild, soft-spok- 
en way the job of the parliamentar- 
ian, Dr. Riddick pointed out that 
the Senate has its own standing rules 
which differ in many respects from 
conventional parliamentary proce- 
dure. In addition, numerous 
amendments and revisions have 
been made over the years. The result 
is a complex body of rules which re- 
quire a great deal of time to be- 
come thoroughly familiar with. 


Since the presiding officer of the 
Senate has many other duties, it isn't 
practical for him to spend all his 
time with rules. 

In his official capacity, the parlia- 
mentarian is the servant of the Sen- 
ate. When the Senate is in session, 
he sits on the dais in front of the 
presiding officer. He must be ready 
whenever he is called upon to ad- 
vise the presiding officer. The par- 
liamentarian, Dr. Riddick empha- 
sized, does not make decisions. He 
simply advises the presiding officer 
as to what the rule is. All deci- 
sions are made by the presiding of- 

The parliamentarian also advises 
the Senate leaders and the individual 
Senators whenever they have ques- 
tions about procedure. This often 
eliminates controversies on the 
floor and expedites the business of 
the Senate. The parliamentarian 
also indicates the references to com- 
mittees of all bills and resolutions 
introduced as well as those passed 
by the House and transmitted to 
the Senate. 

It is obviously a tough and de- 
manding job, and one that allows 
not the slightest hint of partisan 
preference. During the heat of de- 
bate the parliamentarian must have 
his wits about him every minute, 
and he must immediately produce 

the right answer at the right time. 

But in addition to a wealth of 
scholarly knowledge, the job re- 
quires stamina. During a filibuster 
in 1954, Dr. Riddick remembers 
putting in 86 hours in the Senate 
chamber. Mr. Watkins was ill and 
he had to remain by the presiding 
officer straight through, never able 
to leave for more than a few min- 
utes at a time. "I would doze in my 
chair," Dr. Riddick recalls, "but 
I never got a chance to he down." 

It is obvious that this is one of 
the toughest jobs on Capitol Hill. 
But how does one get to be Senate 

"When I started out," says Dr. 
Riddick, "I had no idea in the world 
of becoming parliamentarian of the 
United States Senate." 

Born in Trotville, N. C, he grew 
up on the family farm in Gates 
County. He didn't care much for 
farm work which he considered too 
hard, but became interested in the 
law by observing the district solici- 
tor perform in Gates County Su- 
perior Court. So he decided to be- 
come an attorney, and with this 
objective he entered Duke. 

At Duke, however, he became a 
student of Dr. Robert S. Rankin's 
and soon changed his mind in favor 
of an academic career. After re- 
ceiving his bachelor's degree in 

1932, he went on to Vanderbilt 
where he earned a master's degree 
in political science before returning 
to Duke to work on his doctorate. 

In 1935 he received his Ph.D. 
His dissertation was almost a fore- 
cast of the future, it dealt with 
parliamentary procedure in the 
House of Representatives. 

After graduation he worked as a 
statistical analyst for the govern- 
ment, and spent a year at the Univer- 
sity of Berlin on an international fel- 
lowship. His research paper on lo- 
cal institutions in Germany was later 
used by the U.S. occupation forces 
after World War II. 

After his return from Germany, 
Dr. Riddick did some teaching at 
American University and, for a sum- 
mer session, at Duke. Then he 
took a job as legislative analyst for 
a private research organization 
known as Congressional Intelligence, 
Inc. He edited their publications for 
several years, and published articles 
in scholarly journals. As a result 
he came to the attention of scholars 
in the field and his reputation as an 
expert in congressional procedures 
began to grow. 

He is the author of Congressional 
Procedure (1941) and The U. S. 
Congress: Organization and Pro- 
cedure (1949), and the co-author 
of Congress in Action (1948) and 
Senate Procedure (1958). 

In 1947 he went to the Senate to 
inaugurate the publication of the 
Congressional Record's Digest. This 
publication is now recognized as an 
indispensable tool for readers of the 

As he relaxes in his spacious of- 
fice, which he shares with his as- 
sistant and his secretary, Dr. Rid- 
dick is obviously a proud and happy 
man. He is proud of the Senate, 
"the world's greatest deliberative 
body," and he is proud of his asso- 
ciation with it. 

Upon his appointment to the post, 
he was praised by a number of Sen- 
ators as a worthy successor to the 

esteemed Charles Watkins. Senator 
Russell of Georgia, whose own deep 
knowledge of the rules is outstand- 
ing, said he was confident Floyd 
Riddick "will live up in every re- 
spect to the kind of service de- 
manded of a successor to Charlie 

Senator Mike Monroney of Okla- 

homa pointed out that Dr. Riddick 
knew the history and traditions of 
the Senate well, and observed: 

"He is also well aware that the 
parliamentarian, like Caesar's wife, 
must be above suspicion on all ac- 
counts, because in the Senate many 
parliamentary decisions are more 
important than votes."

A chronicle of important events and developments at Duke University 


Humphrey at Duke 

Vice President Hubert Humphrey 
came to the University on the last 
week end in April and gave a major 
address in the Indoor Stadium. 

As chief spokesman for President 
Johnson's "Great Society," Humphrey 
pointed out that the administration is 
not seeking a welfare state but a state 
of opportunity where every man can 
enjoy the blessings of life. "The Great 
Society," he said, "is based on the 
proposition that every man shall have 
that opportunity." 

He hailed the new Elementary and 
Secondary Education Act as a "basic 
investment toward achieving that 
equality of opportunity," and cited the 
pending Higher Education Act as an- 
other important step. 

And he appealed to the generation 
of 1965 to "Make no little plans. 
Have no little dreams." For, he said, 
"Today we reach for the stars." 

Grant for Children 

The University has received a 
$2,945,000 grant from the Ford 
Foundation to help educate children 
from culturally deprived back- 

Duke will operate the program 
jointly with Durham city and county 
public school systems, North Carolina 
College, and Operation Breakthrough, 
coordinating agency for the city's 
various privately and governmentally 
financed anti-poverty programs. The 
grant will be used to establish a model 
program of early education to help 
overcome the educational handicaps 
of children from poor and culturally 
disadvantaged families. 

Everett H. Hopkins, president of 
Operation Breakthrough and vice 
president at Duke, said the program is 
expected to begin on a modest scale 
this summer. Several segments will be 
in operation by September, although 
it won't be fully implemented for 
about three years. 

Several hundred children will be in- 
volved in the experiment, some in 
nursery schools from age two to four 
and others in preschool projects at 
ages four, five and six. The program 
will continue in three of Durham's 
regular elementary schools — Edge- 
mont, Pearson, and Lakeview — on an 
ungraded basis up to about age eight. 
South Side School will be used as a 
laboratory for experiments in the edu- 
cation of nursery and kindergarten 

Duke President Douglas M. Knight 
said he sees "untold benefits for the 
University, public schools, and the en- 
tire Durham community" to be de- 
rived from the program. 

"It is extremely healthy for a 
community when its colleges and uni- 
versities, its public schools, and its 
social and community agencies genu- 

inely join hands in a program for the 
benefit of all." 

Psychologists, psychiatrists, pedia- 
tricians, and specialists from Duke 
and North Carolina College will study 
the development of infants from cul- 
turally deprived backgrounds in order 
to help assure them a healthy start in 
life. The nursery-school and preschool 
educational aspects will seek to pro- 
vide experiences that are a normal 
part of the lives of most middle-class 
children but which culturally dis- 
advantaged children often miss. Ex- 
amples include extended conversation, 
opportunities to develop an idea of 
size and shape, visits to places outside 
their immediate neighborhood, and 
individual attention and encourage- 

The ungraded elementary school 
will move children ahead in academic 
skills, such as reading and arithmetic, 
as fast as they can learn, regardless of 

Students from Duke and NCC will 
help staff the nursery, preschool and 
elementary school projects. The two 
institutions also will help train present 
and future teachers and guidance 
personnel for the programs. 

Duke at U.N. 

The University's Rule of Law Re- 
search Center has recently opened a 
New York City office, opposite the 
United Nations Building. The step 
will enable Center personnel to ob- 
serve UN operations easily. 

Center Director Dr. Arthur Larson, 
who made the announcement, also ex- 
plained that the Center has been of- 
ficially accredited to the UN as a 
non-governmental organization. Such 
accreditation is provided for in the 
UN Charter, he said. 

"This is a rather unusual privilege 

for a university-research organiza- 
tion," Dr. Larson said. "It confers a 
number of benefits." Values derived 
will include sending observers to UN 
conferences and, at times, having 
Center personnel present papers at 
these, he noted. 

"Such an accredited organization 
may be consulted by the UN's Eco- 
nomic and Social Council and by the 
Secretariat," Dr. Larson said. The of- 
fice also will have certain rights to 
UN documents and access to various 
facilities of the agency. Opening of 
the office will enable the Center to 
maintain continuous contact with the 
work of the UN, Dr. Larson said. 

"The Center is attempting to study 
at first hand the process of law- 
making and disputes-settling by the 
UN and its agencies," he explained. 
In residence at the office will be Dr. 
Luke T. Lee. Currently, he is with 
the Center staff at headquarters in the 
Law School. 

The new office will be on the 12th 
floor of the Church Center for the 
UN at 777 UN Plaza. The Church 
Center also includes an International 
Affairs Library and the Dag Ham- 
marskjold Lounge. These attract 
thousands of UN visitors annually. 
Dr. Larson said, "This will afford a 
chance for the Center to distribute its 
publications and educational materials 
more effectively." 

Dreams W Heartaches 

For centuries, poets have equated 
dreams and heartaches. Now scien- 
tists have done the same. A group 
of Duke researchers recently impli- 
cated stressful or nightmarish dreams 
as a cause of the sudden, severe chest 
pain that comes when a sick heart be- 
comes overworked. 

Dr. John Nowlin, clinical research 
associate at the Duke Medical Cen- 
ter, told a recent medical gathering 
in Atlantic City, N. J., that a series 
of intricate tests on patients with 
coronary artery (heart) disease 
showed that episodes of nighttime 
angina pectoris were preceded by 

The report on the study, conducted 
by a team of Duke researchers, was 


R/V Eastward, the University's new ocean-going research vessel is formally 
presented to Duke by the National Science Foundation in dockside ceremonies 
at the Marine Laboratory on Pivers Island near Beaufort, North Carolina. 

presented at the annual meeting of the 
5,000-member American Federation 
for Clinical Research. 

Victims of coronary artery disease 
have long been told by medical men 
to avoid strenuous exercise, stress and 
anxiety as a means to prevent day- 
time episodes of angina. But the 
reasons for the relatively common 
nighttime episodes when a person sup- 
posedly is in his most relaxed state 
remained a puzzle. 

In an interview prior to his speech, 
Dr. Nowlin said that medical men 
must consider methods to treat 
"dream anxiety" as another way to 
treat angina. 

In his speech, he outlined how the 
study was conducted. Electrocardio- 
gram (EKG) electrodes to monitor 
heart activity and electroencephalo- 
gram (EEG) electrodes to monitor 
brain waves were attached at night to 
four patients who had complained of 
nocturnal attacks of angina. 

It was known that people ordinari- 
ly dream only about 20 per cent of 
the time they are asleep. When 
dreams begin, the eyes start a series of 
rapid movements that can be detected 
with special EEG electrodes. 

Members of the Duke team moni- 
tored the machines throughout the 
nights they were attached. They 

found that in 32 of 39 painful epi- 
sodes of angina that wakened the 
patients, angina "definitely" was 
preceded by increased respiration, 
heart rate and other signs that the 
heart was not getting enough oxygen, 
plus the rapid eye movements of the 
dream state. 

One of the patients woke up nine 
times during a single night with nine 
attacks of angina. He suffered a fatal 
heart attack a few days later. 

While no attempt was made to deter- 
mine what kinds of dreams brought 
on the attacks in this particular study, 
Dr. Claude Nichols, another member 
of the Duke team, said that other 
studies showed that the implicated

"The Impact of Education, Science and Technology 
on the South" was the theme of a recent symposium 
on campus honoring Dr. Paul M. Gross, William 
Howell Pegram Professor of Chemistry at the Uni- 
versity and faculty member since 1919. Dr. Gross' ap- 
proaching retirement in August was the occasion for 
the symposium. A past president of the world's largest 
scientific organization, the American Association for 
the Advancement of Science, he has been president of 
the Oak Ridge Institute of Nuclear Studies since 1949. 
Dr. Gross also holds the President's Medal for Merit 
and other major honors. 

Dr. Heald was one of the major speakers at the 
symposium. A former president of Illinois Institute 
of Technology and chancellor of New York University, 
Dr. Heald has been president of the Ford Foundation 
since 1956. 

Ford Foundation President lauds retiring Professor Paul Gross at a symposium 
in his honor, and challenges Southern higher education to strive for excellence. 

In his farewell address as president of the Ameri- 
can Association for the Advancement of Science, 
Dr. Paul Gross voiced concern about the single 
scientist amidst the complex and costly paraphernalia 
surrounding modern scientific activity. Let us make 
sure, he urged, that highly organized and programmed 
scientific activity does not inhibit or exclude, in his 
words, "the individual with faith in his idea and skepti- 
cism of established dogma." 

That description seems most fitting for Dr. Gross 
himself. It applies to his role in science. It applies 
with equal force to his role in education, and particu- 
larly higher education in the South. 

The established dogma of Southern education has 
been resignation to second-best status. Under what 
some Southern leaders called the "cult of easiness," 
Southern colleges and universities compared themselves 
only with others in the region. Even efforts to improve 
stopped short of aspiring to the best of the nation's 
standards and attainments. It was the dogma of the 
double standard of which former Governor Darden of 
Virginia despaired when he said, "It is nonsense to say 
that we are going to project a plan for making regional 
or sectional standards in the South — -you are either a 
good institution or not, no matter what the geography." 

Paul Gross's skepticism and faith in an idea have 
struggled to overcome that dogma. The fruits of his 
conviction and labor are showing not only at this uni- 
versity but throughout the South. 

They were visible in an eloquent call to a new era 
for Southern education in 1961. The report of the 
Commission on Goals for Higher Education in the 
South declared: 

"Instead of merely trying to achieve a national 
average . . . the South must join the rest of the nation in 
a substained effort to advance the quality of higher 
education. Our colleges and universities must be of 

such strength and character as to enable them to take 
their places alongside those distinguished institutions 
which for centuries have been the hope and promise of 
Western thought and culture." 

Long before that report, Dr. Gross's own university 
had been working toward a position of high national 
rank. As is often the case, Duke's rise was the conjunc- 
tion of a seed of quality, an infusion of financial re- 
sources, and the vision and dedication of a few men. 

Trinity College was one of the few exceptions to 
the drab landscape of Southern colleges a half century 
ago. It already possessed some of the fibers of the uni- 
versity heritage. It had already engaged in struggles 
to safeguard the integrity of academic purpose, even at 
the expense of unpopular positions. It held fast to 
standards, turning away unqualified tuition-paying stu- 
dents even when it could not meet the faculty payroll. 
And it had welcomed able young scholars, regardless of 
their background. 

The notion of equating the quality of a university 
with the quality of its faculty was not universal in those 
days. As a good educational architect, Dr. Gross 
emphasized the need to strengthen existing departments 
before rushing into new departments or schools. He 
worked to bring more outstanding scholars to the Uni- 
versity. Among them, scientific scholars, though 
science had often had to tiptoe into American univer- 
sities through the back door. And he saw before many 
others that scientists enriched not only the university 
but the South as well, for science and technology were 
to be the very touchstones of the region's economic 

But his compass also circumscribed the humanities, 
the social sciences, and the professional schools. More- 
over, he labored in the cause of education beyond 
the gates of Duke — in organizing the Council of South- 
ern Universities, in service with the Woodrow Wilson 

National Fellowship Foundation, the National Science 
Foundation, the Oak Ridge Institute, UNESCO, and 
important governmental panels. 

The more he does, the more a pioneer sees how 
much more needs to be done. 

In the March Harper's magazine, Virginius Dabney 
writes both of Southern educational progress and self- 

Faculty salaries, entrance requirements, libraries, 
laboratories, and graduate education are improving, 
but, he says, "the stubborn fact [is] that the eleven 
states which formed the Confederacy do not have a 
single one of the top ten American universities." 

"But an encouraging thing today," he goes on, "is 
that this judgment can ... be made without serious risk 
to mayhem." In short, the spreading awareness of the 
gap is quite as significant as the efforts to bridge the 

g a P- 

The double standard of regional disparities also 

plagues elementary and secondary education, of course. 

And the South and the nation as a whole are damaged 

by a third standard of quality — the inferior education 

of Negroes at all levels. 

The Promise of the South 

Despite some very real differences, the promise 
and problems of higher education in the South 
resemble the rest of the country's more than 
they differ. American colleges and universities are 
emerging from one period of momentous postwar 
change. Higher education is no longer a humble 
petitioner for a modest portion of the nation's resources. 
It is cultivated as a national resource itself and pro- 
pelled — by its own choice or not — into the mainstream 
of social, economic, and even political events. 

Notwithstanding great increases in both private and 
public support, our colleges and universities need a lot 
more money, and they need it fast. But I think we are 
leaving the period of obsessive preoccupation with 
budgets and buildings. Far more profound issues — 
some of long standing, some of recent origin — are 
commanding the thought and attention of college presi- 
dents, trustees, and faculties. 

Foremost (and related, really, to all the others) is 
the adjustment of higher education to sweeping change. 
I use the word adjustment with some caution, because 
higher education is supposed to be an agent of change. 
But it seems clear that the university is as much moved 
by society as it moves society. This is no cause for in- 
stitutional schizophrenia, but rather the essence of 
interaction between education and a free society. The 
trick is to strike a balance. A university must dis- 
tinguish between mere academic fashion and funda- 
mental evolutionary trends. 

Following generations of debate about classical 
studies, the elective system, and general education, a 
somewhat stable truce long prevailed in curriculum. 
That truce has been shattered in the last generation 
both by the surge of enrollments and the terrific growth 
of knowledge. It is now an urgent necessity that 
higher education practice the academic principle 
preached for so long. That is, formal education serves 
best as a prologue to a lifetime of learning. 

When even the "exact" sciences foreswear un- 
changing certainty, no curriculum can pretend to endow 
a student with fully guaranteed intellectual equipment. 
Continuous review and reform of the content of higher 
education are frequently agonizing. But they have 
stimulated fundamental inquiries into the extent and 
nature of knowledge in all fields and into the process 
of learning itself. 

Experiments & Changes 

The organization of our colleges and universities 
is also in flux. Some traditional practices are 
being scrapped or strengthened, and new ones 
are being designed. Matters once considered stable and 
settled — faculty-student ratios, the length of the aca- 
demic year, the formal requirements for degrees, the 
proportion of elective vs. required programs — all are 
being scrutinized. Experimentation is no longer con- 
fined to the new or the off-beat institutions. There is 
some real interest in the techniques of college and 
university teaching, and even with new technology and 
facilities that can improve teaching and learning. 

Beyond the campus, higher education is riding a 
strong current of confrontation with society. The land- 
grant universities established a precedent of public 
service. The university today — regardless of its charter 
or means of support — is called to a role of public 
leadership. In any university worth the name, 
academic isolation is outmoded. The understanding of 
science, the clamor of the disadvantaged from Appala- 
chia to Asia, the measurement of technological change, 
the challenges of racial unrest, the critical web of inter- 
national affairs — all demand insights and skills of 
which the university is a prime source. 

Each institution can provide its own examples. But 
whatever the shape and dimensions of the list, it should 
include the ultimate service of a true university. That 
is, to illuminate and advance civilization, through both 
the fulfillment of the individual and the perfection of 
the groups and communities in which men live together. 

Education is only one of many forces shaping a 
society's outlook, its sense of purpose, or lack of it. But 
as one social institution, the university ought to 
examine its influence on the values of the generations 
who pass through its doors. It is not a neutral force. 


It cannot claim success if it produces highly trained 
men and women who are rootless, selfish, disaffected, 
or indifferent as they set out to become working mem- 
bers of society. 

The area of leadership in which the university 
should be pre-eminently qualified is education itself. 

A most significant trend of recent years is the 
increasing role of colleges and universities in edu- 
cational improvement at all levels. Recognition of a 
national system of education is growing. New ties are 
being knit within the characteristic American pattern 
of diversity and pluralism. That is, the whole system 
is strengthened, not at the expense of the parts but to 
their individual advantage. Schools, colleges, and uni- 
versities are spending less time pointing to each other's 
defects and more in helping one another. Together 
they are exploring the real implications of a lifetime of 
learning, pushing the limits both at the preschool years 
and beyond postgraduate education. 

The partnership between schoolteachers and uni- 
versity scholars in building new curricula in the sci- 
ences is by now an old story, though not concluded. 
The gap between advanced knowledge and its re- 
discovery in the schools is closing. Indeed, colleges are 
challenged to meet the needs of a new generation of 
high-school graduates who are ready for more than the 
conventional college curriculum offers. 

Pervading all is a tide of exploration and discovery 
into the nature of human intelligence. Established 
dogmas about the range of individual capacity are 
tumbling. What began as a concern for the apparent 
upper reaches of intellectual ability has now shed 
light on the darkest corners of apparent hopelessness. 
Research and experiments are opening new avenues 
to the discovery, measurement, and stimulation of 

This heightened concern with the individual learner 
should go a long way in dispelling fearful dogmas about 
mass education. There appears now to be more 
shadow than substance to the ceiling on the number or 
proportion of young people who can take advantage 
of more education. For the limit is imposed to a great 
extent by conditions unrelated to innate individual 
capacity. And among these conditions, are short- 
comings in education itself. 

In the glare of large-scale Federal antipoverty and 
education bills, we may forget how long society took 
to see beyond the physical decay of cities, past rural 
blight, and into the human erosion of "the other 
America." We have only begun to pry open the social 
and cultural doors that block millions of Americans 
from education equal to their potential. 

Historians will labor long to record the social, 
political, and economic events that propelled us into 
this great adventure. Right now the challenge is to 


Paul M. Gross muses over his 46 years on the faculty 

take full measure of the prospects and the efforts neces- 
sary to realize them. For the task of achieving equal 
educational opportunity for those who have not had it, 
and superior education for both the "hads" and the 
"had nots" is even more difficult than finding funds and 
signing pledges to comply with the law. 

The need of course spans the country and makes no 
distinctions as to race or creed. Poverty and ignorance 
stalk our wealthiest cities and our poorest rural 
counties. They afflict half of the country's Negroes 


but also more than 25 million other Americans, and 
they damage all of us, spiritually as well as economi- 
cally and politically. 

On the educational level, the Southern Association 
of Colleges and Schools took stock of its role formally 
in 1962. Later it established the Education Improve- 
ment Project, which last year helped create in Nashville 
a center for a broad-scale, coordinated attack on the 
conditions that retard Negro educational progress in the 
public schools. From pre-kindergarten through the 
college level, the Nashville center is working to im- 
prove teaching, to provide meaningful learning mate- 
rials, to help students financially to stay in schools, and 
to enlist the home and other community agencies in 
stimulating pupils to greater achievement. It is a joint 
enterprise of the public schools, George Peabody Col- 
lege for Teachers, Fisk University, and Vanderbilt Uni- 

The Durham Project 

I wish to announce that the Ford Foundation is mak- 
ing a grant of some $3 million to Duke University 
for another center. This university together with 
North Carolina College, the Durham City and County 
Schools, and Operation Breakthrough has developed 
a plan for a model school program to thoroughly im- 
prove the education of culturally and economically dis- 
advantaged children, Negro and white. 

The Durham project focuses on the critical early 
childhood years, when human intelligence may be most 
severely thwarted. It will include research and experi- 
mentation in a laboratory school. In addition, nursery 
schools and preschool programs will be established to 
nourish language development and other skills preced- 
ing intellectual learning. These programs will be 
carried through the regular public schools on an un- 
graded basis, forming a new five-year sequence of 
schooling. Reaching farther back to prevent impedi- 
ments to the intellectual development of children, the 
center will also work with parents, future parents, and 

It involves the whole range of elements from cur- 
riculum and textbooks to teacher training, school 
organization, and coordination with community develop- 
ment activities of agencies tike the North Carolina 
Fund and the Federal government. 

This is one instance in which Southern education 
has vowed not to settle for second best. There are 
others. The Southern Regional Education Board fore- 
shadowed efforts in many parts of the country to pool 
the resources of institutions of higher learning. The 
research complexes in North Carolina and Texas are 
substantial examples of the interaction between uni- 
versities and industry to advance science and technol- 


ogy of national merit. Right outside of Durham, the 
Learning Institute of North Carolina is showing how 
the universities and the schools, supported by public 
and private resources, can collaborate in research and 
innovation to improve the education of students not 
working up to their potential. In one Southern univer- 
sity or another are first-class centers of international 
legal studies, foreign-area programs, humanistic scholar- 
ship and quality in other fields. 

In its struggle toward quality, higher education in 
the South has the potential not simply of attaining 
parity, but also of setting examples for colleges and 
universities elsewhere. 

The path may he in full-scale community develop- 
ment through the intervention of education of such 
magnitude and effectiveness that we will look back at 
the Nashville and Durham centers as modest first steps. 

It may he in university contributions to a kind of 
urban development free of the decay and obsolescence 
that afflict so many great Northern cities and spill over 
into the countryside. 

Or it may he in a creative response to the challenge 
of students discontent. For beyond agitation for its 
own sake, or an assault on American institutions, the 
unrest on many campuses may well consist of an 
urgent desire to help our society revitalize and fulfill 

Universities are emerging as centers of power in a 
time of bewildering complexity, uncertainty, and up- 
heaval. If they are to serve society imaginatively, we 
must also serve them well. With the great migrations 
of population across this country, and with new pat- 
terns of higher education, it is no surprise that many 
students no longer start at one college and emerge with 
a degree from the same institution just four years later. 
At the same time, faculties and administrators are 
becoming as mobile as corporate executives. Loyalty 
to an idea, or to an academic discipline, or to higher 
education as a whole, are important. But if we lightly 
dismiss loyalty to individual institutions, where will 
they find stability and experience with which to grow 

Certainly the man we honor today is exemplary 
of service to an institution. 

To rise above the double standard, the universities 
of the South need from other institutions in Southern 
society and from the citizens of the South loyalty, sup- 
port, and, above all, understanding of the meaning 
of higher education. 

The ideal was expressed a long time ago in Jeffer- 
son's hopes for his beloved University of Virginia: 

"We wish to establish," he said, "a university so 
broad and liberal and modern as to be ... a temptation 
of the youth of other states to come and drink of the 
cup of knowledge and fraternize with us." 



ithin the past two years the University com- 
mittee of the board of trustees, under its 
able chairman George V. Allen '24, has 
been hard at work creating visiting committees for the

\ \ hat with rockets and missiles, thermonuclear weapons and 

men walking in space, the world of science and technology is very 
much with us. It is also with us in much more mundane and common- 
place ways too. We take for granted the cars we drive, the planes we 
fly in, the television we watch or the lights we read by. But all this 
material wealth and splendor, and our preoccupation with it, relates 
to the world of things, of matter and forces. What about the life of the 
spirit, the soul of our civilization, the humanities? 

"The humanities are not essential to our national defense, but they 
are essential to our civilization," remarked Professor Arlin Turner 
during a seminar on the humanities not long ago. To most of our 
readers, if they stopped to think about it, this remark will seem so 
apparent that they may wonder why it needs saying. The answer is 
quite simply that many people have not stopped to think about it. 
Since the dawn of the atomic age, but most especially since the orbit- 
ing of Sputnik I, the nation has poured its wealth, talents and energy 
into scientific research and development as never before. In the pro- 
cess, science and the scientists have taken on an aura of glamor and 
prestige that they never before had. They have also been given the 
lion's share of support and attention. And, as we know from our high 
school physics course, it's an accepted scientific principle that every 
action has an equal and opposite reaction. The result in this case 
has been a serious lack of attention to the humanities on the national 

Duke, with its long tradition of devotion to the liberal arts, has 
been more fortunate than many other universities. At Duke the bal- 
ance between the humanities and the sciences has been maintained, 
but it hasn't been an easy thing to do. Support means money, and 
money for research, teaching, writing and publication projects in the 
humanities is not so easily come by. There is, in fact, a considerable 
gap between support being given the humanities and that being given 
the sciences. 

Concern over this problem was galvanized into action two years 
ago with the creation of the National Commission on the Humanities. 
This was a blue ribbon group of outstanding educators, academicians, 
business and industrial leaders. (Dr. Robert M. Lumiansky of the 
University's English department was a member.) Last year they made 
their report in which they recommended that a National Humanities 
Foundation be established. Recently a bill was introduced in the 
United States Senate to implement this recommendation. In the spe- 
cial report that follows, "The Plight of the Humanities" is discussed 
in depth. We are pleased to join with other alumni editors to bring 
this report to you, and we are also pleased to see that Whitman scholar 
and Duke alumnus ('26, A.M. '29) Gay Wilson Allen appears on 
page 24 of the report. 
















^Vmidst great 

material well-being, 

our culture stands in danger 

of losing its very soul. 

With the greatest economic prosperity 
ever known by Man; 
With scientific accomplishments 
unparalleled in human history; 

With a technology whose machines and methods 
continually revolutionize our way of life: 

We are neglecting, and stand in serious danger of 
losing, our culture's very soul. 

This is the considered judgment of men and women 
at colleges and universities throughout the United 
States — men and women whose life's work it is to 
study our culture and its "soul." They are scholars 
and teachers of the humanities: history, languages, 
literature, the arts, philosophy, the history and com- 
parison of law and religion. Their concern is Man 
and men — today, tomorrow, throughout history. 
Their scholarship and wisdom are devoted to assess- 
ing where we humans are, in relation to where we 
have come from — and where we may be going, in 
light of where we are and have been. 

Today, examining Western Man and men, many 
of them are profoundly troubled by what they see: 
an evident disregard, or at best a deep devaluation, 
of the things that refine and dignify and give meaning 
and heart to our humanity. 


-ow is it now with us?" asks a group of 
distinguished historians. Their answer: "Without 
really intending it, we are on our way to becoming a 
dehumanized society." 

A group of specialists in Asian studies, reaching 
essentially the same conclusion, offers an explanation: 

"It is a truism that we are a nation of activists, 
problem-solvers, inventors, would-be makers of bet- 
ter mousetraps. . . . The humanities in the age of 
super-science and super-technology have an increas- 
ingly difficult struggle for existence." 

"Soberly," reports a committee of the American 
Historical Association, "we must say that in Ameri- 
can society, for many generations past, the prevailing 
concern has been for the conquest of nature, the pro- 
duction of material goods, and the development of a 
viable system of democratic government. Hence we 
have stressed the sciences, the application of science 
through engineering, and the application of engineer- 
ing or quantitative methods to the economic and 
political problems of a prospering republic." 

The stress, the historians note, has become even 
more intense in recent years. Nuclear fission, the 
Communist threat, the upheavals in Africa and Asia, 
and the invasion of space have caused our concern 
with "practical" things to be "enormously rein- 

Says a blue-ribbon "Commission on the Humani- 
ties," established as a result of the growing sense of 
unease about the non-scientific aspects of human life: 

"The result has often been that our social, moral, 
and aesthetic development lagged behind our material 
advance. . . . 

"The state of the humanities today creates a crisis 
for national leadership." 


.he crisis, which extends into every home, 
into every life, into every section of our society, is 
best observed in our colleges and universities. As 
both mirrors and creators of our civilization's atti- 
tudes, the colleges and universities not only reflect 
what is happening throughout society, but often 
indicate what is likely to come. 

Today, on many campuses, science and engineering 
are in the ascendancy. As if in consequence, important 
parts of the humanities appear to be on the wane. 

Scientists and engineers are likely to command the 
best job offers, the best salaries. Scholars in the hu- 
manities are likely to receive lesser rewards. 

Scientists and engineers are likely to be given finan- 
cial grants and contracts for their research — by govern- 
ment agencies, by foundations, by industry. Scholars 
in the humanities are likely to look in vain for such 

Scientists and engineers are likely to find many of 
the best-qualified students clamoring to join their 
ranks. Those in the humanities, more often than not, 
must watch helplessly as the talent goes next door. 

Scientists and engineers are likely to get new build- 
ings, expensive equipment, well-stocked and up-to- 
the-minute libraries. Scholars in the humanities, even 
allowing for their more modest requirements of phys- 
ical facilities, often wind up with second-best. 

Quite naturally, such conspicuous contrasts have 
created jealousies. And they have driven some persons 
in the humanities (and some in the sciences, as well) 
to these conclusions: 

1) The sciences and the humanities are in mortal 

competition. As science thrives, the humanities must 
languish — and vice versa. 

2) There are only so many physical facilities, so 
much money, and so much research and teaching 
equipment to go around. Science gets its at the ex- 
pense of the humanities. The humanities' lot will be 
improved only if the sciences' lot is cut back. 

To others, both in science and in the humanities, 
such assertions sound like nonsense. Our society, 
they say, can well afford to give generous support to 
both science and the humanities. (Whether or not it 
will, they admit, is another question.) 

A committee advising the President of the United 
States on the needs of science said in 1960: 

"... We repudiate emphatically any notion that 
science research and scientific education are the only 
kinds of learning that matter to America. . . . Obvi- 
ously a high civilization must not limit its efforts to 
science alone. Even in the interests of science itself, 
it is essential to give full value and support to the 
other great branches of Man's artistic, literary, and 
scholarly activity. The advancement of science must 
not be accomplished by the impoverishment of any- 
thing else. . . ." 

The Commission on the Humanities has said: 

"Science is far more than a tool for adding to our 
security and comfort. It embraces in its broadest 
sense all efforts to achieve valid and coherent views 
of reality; as such, it extends the boundaries of ex- 
perience and adds new dimensions to human char- 
acter. If the interdependence of science and the hu- 
manities were more generally understood, men would 
be more likely to become masters of their technology 
and not its unthinking servants." 

None of which is to deny the existence of differ- 
ences between science and the humanities, some of 
which are due to a lack of communication but others 
of which come from deep-seated misgivings that the 
scholars in one vineyard may have about the work 
and philosophies of scholars in the other. Differences 
or no, however, there is little doubt that, if Americans 
should choose to give equal importance to both 
science and the humanities, there are enough ma- 
terial resources in the U.S. to endow both, amply. 


.hus far, however, Americans have not so 
chosen. Our culture is the poorer for it. 

the humanities' view: 

is nothing 


"Composite man, cross-section man, 
organization man, status-seeking man 
are not here. It is still one of the 
merits of the humanities that they see 
man with all his virtues and weak- 
nesses, including his first, middle, and 
last names." 



Why should an educated but practical 
American take the vitality of the 
humanities as his personal concern? 
What possible reason is there for the 
business or professional man, say, to trouble himself 
with the present predicament of such esoteric fields 
as philosophy, exotic literatures, history, and art? 
In answer, some quote Hamlet: 

What is a man 
If his chief good and market of his time 
Be but to sleep and feed? a beast, no more. 

Others, concerned with the effects of science and 
technology upon the race, may cite Lewis Mumford: 

"... It is now plain that only by restoring the 
human personality to the center of our scheme of 
thought can mechanization and automation be 
brought back into the services of life. Until this hap- 
pens in education, there is not a single advance in 
science, from the release of nuclear energy to the 
isolation of DNA in genetic inheritance, that may 
not, because of our literally absent-minded automa- 
tion in applying it, bring on disastrous consequences 
to the human race." 

Says Adlai Stevenson: 

"To survive this revolution [of science and tech- 
nology], education, not wealth and weapons, is our 
best hope — that largeness of vision and generosity of 
spirit which spring from contact with the best minds 
and treasures of our civilization." 


m he 

he commission on the Humanities cites five 
reasons, among others, why America's need of the 
humanities is great: 

"1) All men require that a vision be held before 
them, an ideal toward which they may strive. Ameri- 
cans need such a vision today as never before in their 
history. It is both the dignity and the duty of hu- 
manists to offer their fellow-countrymen whatever 
understanding can be attained by fallible humanity 
of such enduring values as justice, freedom, virtue, 
beauty, and truth. Only thus do we join ourselves 
to the heritage of our nation and our human kind. 

"2) Democracy demands wisdom of the average 
man. Without the exercise of wisdom free institutions 

and personal liberty are inevitably imperiled. To 
know the best that has been thought and said in 
former times can make us wiser than we otherwise 
might be, and in this respect the humanities are not 
merely our, but the world's, best hope. 

"3) . . . [Many men] find it hard to fathom the 
motives of a country which will spend billions on its 
outward defense and at the same time do little to 
maintain the creative and imaginative abilities of its 
own people. The arts have an unparalleled capability 
for crossing the national barriers imposed by language 
and contrasting customs. The recently increased 
American encouragement of the performing arts is 
to be welcomed, and will be welcomed everywhere 
as a sign that Americans accept their cultural respon- 
sibilities, especially if it serves to prompt a corre- 
sponding increase in support for the visual and the 
liberal arts. It is by way of the humanities that we 
best come to understand cultures other than our own, 
and they best to understand ours. 

"4) World leadership of the kind which has come 
upon the United States cannot rest solely upon su- 
perior force, vast wealth, or preponderant technology. 
Only the elevation of its goals and the excellence of 
its conduct entitle one nation to ask others to follow 
its lead. These are things of the spirit. If we appear 
to discourage creativity, to demean the fanciful and 
the beautiful, to have no concern for man's ultimate 
destiny — if, in short, we ignore the humanities — then 
both our goals and our efforts to attain them will be 
measured with suspicion. 

- "5) A novel and serious challenge to Americans 
is posed by the remarkable increase in their leisure 
time. The forty-hour week and the likelihood of a 
shorter one, the greater life-expectancy and the earlier 
ages of retirement, have combined to make the bless- 
ing of leisure a source of personal and community 
concern. 'What shall I do with my spare time' all-too- 
quickly becomes the question 'Who am I? What shall 
I make of my life?' When men and women find 
nothing within themselves but emptiness they turn 
to trivial and narcotic amusements, and the society 
of which they are a part becomes socially delinquent 
and potentially unstable. The humanities are the im- 
memorial answer to man's questioning and to his 
need for self-expression; they are uniquely equipped 
to fill the 'abyss of leisure.' " 

The arguments are persuasive. But, aside from the 

scholars themselves (who are already convinced), is 
anybody listening? Is anybody stirred enough to do 
something about "saving" the humanities before it 
is too late? 

"Assuming it considers the matter at all," says 
Dean George C. Branam, "the population as a whole 
sees [the death of the liberal arts tradition] only as 
the overdue departure of a pet dinosaur. 

"It is not uncommon for educated men, after 
expressing their overwhelming belief in liberal educa- 
tion, to advocate sacrificing the meager portion found 
in most curricula to get in more subjects related to 
the technical job training which is now the principal 

"The respect they profess, however honestly they 
proclaim it, is in the final analysis superficial and 
false: they must squeeze in one more math course 
for the engineer, one more course in comparative 
anatomy for the pre-medical student, one more ac- 
counting course for the business major. The business 
man does not have to know anything about a Bee- 
thoven symphony; the doctor doesn't have to com- 
prehend a line of Shakespeare; the engineer will 
perform his job well enough without ever having 
heard of Machiavelli. The unspoken assumption is 
that the proper function of education is job training 
and that alone." 

Job training, of course, is one thing the humanities 
rarely provide, except for the handful of students 
who will go on to become teachers of the humanities 
themselves. Rather, as a committee of schoolmen 
has put it, "they are fields of study which hold values 
for all human beings regardless of their abilities, 
interests, or means of livelihood. These studies hold 
such values for all men precisely because they are 
focused upon universal qualities rather than upon 
specific and measurable ends. . . . [They] help man to 
find a purpose, endow him with the ability to criticize 
intelligently and therefore to improve his own society, 
and establish for the individual his sense of identity 
with other men both in his own country and in the 
world at large." 


_s this reason enough for educated Americans 
to give the humanities their urgently needed support? 

# The humanities: "Our lives are 

"Upon the humanities depend the 
national ethic and morality. . . 

the substance they are made of." 

. . . the national use of our 

environment and our material accomplishments.'" 

. . . the national aesthetic and 
beauty or lack of it . . . 

# "A million-dollar 
project without 
a million dollars' 

The crisis in the humanities involves people, 
facilities, and money. The greatest of these, 
many believe, is money. With more funds, 
the other parts of the humanities' problem 
would not be impossible to solve. Without more, 
they may well be. 

More money would help attract more bright stu- 
dents into the humanities. Today the lack of funds is 
turning many of today's most talented young people 
into more lucrative fields. "Students are no different 
from other people in that they can quickly observe 
where the money is available, and draw the logical 
conclusion as to which activities their society con- 
siders important," the Commission on the Humanities 
observes. A dean puts it bluntly: "The bright student, 
as well as a white rat, knows a reward when he sees 

More money would strengthen college and uni- 
versity faculties. In many areas, more faculty mem- 
bers are needed urgently. The American Philosophical 
Association, for example, reports: "... Teaching 
demands will increase enormously in the years im- 
mediately to come. The result is: (1) the quality of 
humanistic teaching is now in serious danger of de- 
teriorating; (2) qualified teachers are attracted to 
other endeavors; and (3) the progress of research and 
creative work within the humanistic disciplines falls 
far behind that of the sciences." 

More money would permit the establishment of 
new scholarships, fellowships, and loans to students. 

More money would stimulate travel and hence 
strengthen research. "Even those of us who have 
access to good libraries on our own campuses must 
travel far afield for many materials essential to 
scholarship," say members of the Modern Language 

More money would finance the publication of long- 
overdue collections of literary works. Collections of 
Whitman, Hawthorne, and Melville, for example, 
are "officially under way [but] face both scholarly 
and financial problems." The same is true of transla- 
tions of foreign literature. Taking Russian authors as 
an example, the Modern Language Association notes: 
"The major novels and other works of Turgenev, 
Gogol, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, and Chekhov are readily 
available, but many of the translations are inferior 
and most editions lack notes and adequate introduc- 

tions. . . . There are more than half a dozen transla- 
tions of Crime and Punishment. . . . but there is no 
English edition of Dostoevsky's critical articles, and 
none of his complete published letters. [Other] writers 
of outstanding importance. . . . have been treated 
only in a desultory fashion." 

More money would enable historians to enter areas 
now covered only adequately. "Additional, more 
substantial, or more immediate help," historians say, 
is needed for studies of Asia, Russia, Central Europe, 
the Middle East, and North Africa; for work in intel- 
lectual history; for studying the history of our West- 
ern tradition "with its roots in ancient, classical, 
Christian, and medieval history"; and for "renewed 
emphasis on the history of Western Europe and 
America." "As modest in their talents as in their 
public position," a committee of the American His- 


editors, describes the work on a complete edition 
of the writings of Walt Whitman. Because of a 
lack of sufficient funds, many important literary 
projects are stalled in the United States. One in- 
dication of the state of affairs: the works of only 
two American literary figures — Emily Dickinson 
and Sidney Lanier — are considered to have been 
collected in editions that need no major revisions. 

torical Association says, "our historians too often 
have shown themselves timid and pedestrian in ap- 
proach, dull and unimaginative in their writing. Yet 
these are vices that stem from public indifference." 

More money would enable some scholars, now en- 
gaged in "applied" research in order to get funds, to 
undertake "pure" research, where they might be far 
more valuable to themselves and to society. An ex- 
ample, from the field of linguistics: Money has been 
available in substantial quantities for research related 
to foreign-language teaching, to the development of 
language-translation machines, or to military com- 
munications. "The results are predictable," says a 
report of the Linguistics Society of America. "On 
the one hand, the linguist is tempted into subterfuge — 
dressing up a problem of basic research to make it 
look like applied research. Or, on the other hand, he 
is tempted into applied research for which he is not 
really ready, because the basic research which must 
lie behind it has not yet been done." 

More money would greatly stimulate work in 
archaeology. "The lessons of Man's past are humbling 
ones," Professor William Foxwell Albright, one of 
the world's leading Biblical archaeologists, has said. 
"They are also useful ones. For if anything is clear, 
it is that we cannot dismiss any part of our human 
story as irrelevant to the future of mankind." But, 
reports the Archaeological Institute of America, "the 
knowledge of valuable ancient remains is often per- 
manently lost to us for the lack of as little as $5,000." 

More money: that is the great need. But 
where will it come from? 
Science and technology, in America, 
owe much of their present financial 
strength — and, hence, the means behind their spec- 
tacular accomplishments — to the Federal govern- 
ment. Since World War II, billions of dollars have 
flowed from Washington to the nation's laboratories, 
including those on many a college and university 

The humanities have received relatively few such 
dollars, most of them earmarked for foreign language 
projects and area studies. One Congressional report 
showed that virtually all Federal grants for academic 
facilities and equipment were spent for science; 87 
percent of Federal funds for graduate fellowships 
went to science and engineering; by far the bulk of 
Federal support of faculty members (more than $60 
million) went to science; and most of the Federal 
money for curriculum strengthening was spent on 
science. Of $1,126 billion in Federal funds for basic 
research in 1962, it was calculated that 66 percent 
went to the physical sciences, 29 percent to the life 
sciences, 3 percent to the psychological sciences, 2 
percent to the social sciences, and 1 percent to "other" 
fields. (The figures total 101 percent because fractions 
are rounded out.) 

The funds — particularly those for research — were 
appropriated on the basis of a clearcut quid pro quo: 
in return for its money, the government would get 
research results plainly contributing to the national 
welfare, particularly health and defense. 

With a few exceptions, activities covered by the 
humanities have not been considered by Congress to 
contribute sufficiently to "the national welfare" to 
qualify for such Federal support. 


_t is on precisely this point — that the humanities 
are indeed essential to the national welfare — that 
persons and organizations active in the humanities 
are now basing a strong appeal for Federal support. 

The appeal is centered in a report of the Commis- 
sion on the Humanities, produced by a group of dis- 
tinguished scholars and non-scholars under the chair- 
manship of Barnaby C. Keeney, the president of 
Brown University, and endorsed by organization 
after organization of humanities specialists. 

"Traditionally our government has entered areas 

where there were overt difficulties or where an oppor- 
tunity had opened for exceptional achievement," the 
report states. "The humanities fit both categories, 
for the potential achievements are enormous while 
the troubles stemming from inadequate support are 
comparably great. The problems are of nationwide 
scope and interest. Upon the humanities depend the 
national ethic and morality, the national aesthetic 
and beauty or the lack of it, the national use of our 
environment and our material accomplishments. . . . 

"The stakes are so high and the issues of such 
magnitude that the humanities must have substantial 
help both from the Federal government and from 
other sources." 

The commission's recommendation : ' 'the establish- 
ment of a National Humanities Foundation to 
parallel the National Science Foundation, which is so 
successfully carrying out the public responsibilities 
entrusted to it." 


uch A proposal raises important questions 
for Congress and for all Americans. 

Is Federal aid, for example, truly necessary? Can- 
not private sources, along with the states and mu- 
nicipalities which already support much of American 
higher education, carry the burden? The advocates 
of Federal support point, in reply, to the present 
state of the humanities. Apparently such sources of 
support, alone, have not been adequate. 

Will Federal aid lead inevitably to Federal control? 
"There are those who think that the danger of 

"Until they want to, 
it wonH be do7ie. r 

barnaby c. keeney (opposite page), university 
president and scholar in the humanities, chairs 
the Commission on the Humanities, which has 
recommended the establishment of a Federally 
financed National Humanities Foundation. Will 
this lead to Federal interference? Says President 
Keeney: "When the people of the U.S. want to 
control teaching and scholarship in the humani- 
ties, they will do it regardless of whether there is 
Federal aid. Until they want to, it won't be done." 

Federal control is greater in the humanities and the 
arts than in the sciences, presumably because politics 
will bow to objective facts but not to values and 
taste," acknowledges Frederick Burkhardt, president 
of the American Council of Learned Societies, one 
of the sponsors of the Commission on the Humanities 
and an endorser of its recommendation. "The plain 
fact is that there is always a danger of external con- 
trol or interference in education and research, on 
both the Federal and local levels, in both the public 
and private sectors. The establishment of institutions 
and procedures that reduce or eliminate such inter- 
ference is one of the great achievements of the demo- 
cratic system of government and way of life." 

Say the committeemen of the American Historical 
Association: "A government which gives no support 
at all to humane values may be careless of its own 
destiny, but that government which gives too much 
support (and policy direction) may be more danger- 
ous still. Inescapably, we must somehow increase the 
prestige of the humanities and the flow of funds. At 
the same time, however grave this need, we must 
safeguard the independence, the originality, and the 
freedom of expression of those individuals and those 
groups and those institutions which are concerned 
with liberal learning." 

Fearing a serious erosion of such independence, 
some persons in higher education flatly oppose Fed- 
eral support, and refuse it when it is offered. 

Whether or not Washington does assume a role in 
financing the humanities, through a National Hu- 
manities Foundation or otherwise, this much is cer- 
tain: the humanities, if they are to regain strength 
in this country, must have greater understanding, 
backing, and support. More funds from private 
sources are a necessity, even if (perhaps especially if) 
Federal money becomes available. A diversity of 
sources of funds can be the humanities' best insurance 
against control by any one. 

Happily, the humanities are one sector of higher 
education in which private gifts — even modest gifts — 
can still achieve notable results. Few Americans are 
wealthy enough to endow a cyclotron, but there are 
many who could, if they would, endow a research 
fellowship or help build a library collection in the 


.N both public and private institutions, in both 
small colleges and large universities, the need is ur- 
gent. Beyond the campuses, it affects every phase of 
the national life. 

This is the fateful question: 

Do we Americans, amidst our material well-being, 
have the wisdom, the vision, and the determination 
to save our culture's very soul?

Knight announced recently. The 
change to an all-electric campus al- 
ready is under way, beginning with 
the new dormitory complex now 
under construction at the West 
Campus. New buildings will be 
similarly equipped as they are built, 
and present buildings will be convert- 
ed to electric heating and cooling over 
a period of several years. 

The decision to go all-electric re- 
sulted from an intensive five-year 
study by Duke officials. The age and 
condition of the University's present 
coal-burning steam plants make the 
problem of heating one of the most 
critical now facing the institution. 

Duke's plans for rapid future ex- 
pansion were a major factor in the 
decision. The recently announced 
improvement and expansion program 
calls for $102.4 million worth of con- 
struction during the next decade. 
This would require a much greater 
heating capacity than the University 
now has as an extension of expensive 
underground steam lines. 

Business Manager John M. Dozier 
pointed out that the cost of electricity 
has declined steadily in recent years. 
If this trend continues, as expected, 
the economies of the future will be 
significant, he predicted. "The future 
of developing really low cost electrical 
current was never brighter, and it 
simply makes good sense to move 
with progress in future construction," 
he said. 

An important immediate saving 
will result from elimination of the 
cost of constructing the network of 
tunnels that would be needed to carry 
steam heat to future buildings. The 
combination of electric heating in 
winter and electric cooling in summer 
also will tend to level the University's 
consumption of electricity and assure 
that it gets the lowest rates available. 

Mr. Dozier listed several other ad- 
vantages of converting to electricity. 
They include: 

— Substantially lower maintenance 
and repair costs. 

— Greater flexibility of design, since 
it would not be necessary to conceal 

large, insulated pipes and use bulky 
radiators in electrically heated build- 

— A more attractive campus, with 
no central heating plant and its smoke- 

— Added cleanliness of buildings, 
furniture and equipment. 

The University plans to renovate 
and use the present steam system for 
the next few years to heat its older 
buildings. One of the area's largest 
electric consumers, Duke last year 
used about 53 million kilowatt hours. 
This is almost triple the 18 million 
kilowatt hours used seven years ago. 

Private M.D.'s 

Medical training centers must re- 
verse a trend toward thinking of 
doctors who enter private practice as 
"flunk outs" of the "royalty of 
academia," the president of the 
American Federation for Clinical Re- 
search Dr. Morton I. Bogdonoff de- 
clared recently. He is professor of 
medicine at the Medical Center. 

Dr. Bogdonoff called this feeling a 
"growing undercurrent of thought" in 
academic centers. "More often than 
not, he (the private practitioner) is 
considered to have 'flunked out,' 
usually from the research laboratory, 
and, therefore, he now has to go into 
practice," said Dr. Bogdonoff, an 
academician himself. 

Actually, the reverse of this current 
trend of thought is true, he said, add- 
ing that clinical practice of medicine 
and actual care of man's ills is "the 
most difficult and prestigious task of 

Dr. Bogdonoff made his remarks 
during his presidential address at the 
annual meeting of the federation, a 
5,000 member organization in Atlantic 
City, N. J. 

He described medicine as the dis- 
cipline that provides the link between 
the physical sciences and the social 
sciences. This is true, he said, because 
man is "the summation point of the 
physical sciences and the starting point 
for the social sciences" and the state 
of man and his ills are the "special 
interest of medicine." 

Calling for medical curricula to pay 

more attention to social sciences and 
the "humanness" of man, Dr. Bog- 
donoff urged doctors gathered here 
never to forget that the end result of 
what they seek is better care for their 

He also said that academic medical 
leaders must play a more active role 
in the social and economic problems 
of people. He suggested two specific 
areas of legitimate concern in which 
academic leaders had been slow to 
move: the establishment of health 
care insurance systems and discrimi- 
nation in medical schools and hos- 

"Since it is our main business to be 
concerned with all of the factors that 
create discomfort and disease in man, 
these issues are also very much within 
the province of our interest and 
responsibility," he said. But, he 
added, "we have not heard until verv 
recently, strong and clear voices from 
the academic community."

Bill Lowery -talent agent, music publisher and operator of 
a recording studio -discusses his new insurance program 
with New England Life representative Robert Evensen. 

"How I sold 1,017,000 of Life Insurance 
in my first year with New England Life." 

Bob Evensen was 40 when he applied for a job with 
us in 1963. Although he had 20 years of sales ex- 
perience, he had never sold life insurance before. 
One year after he was hired, Bob had sold $1,017,000 
of life insurance, and had become a member of New 
England Life's Hall of Fame. We asked Bob to ex- 
plain in a paragraph how he did it. 

"As soon as I finished my basic training at New 
England Life (which was excellent), I set my own 
quota of $100,000 a month. I tried to have a minimum 
of 15 interviews a week with at least 2 applications," 
Bob says. "Direct mail has proven a very good 
source of leads. Selling life insurance is the greatest 
business in the world, and coming with New England 

Life was one of the best decisions I've ever made". 
If you would like to investigate a career with New 
England Life, there's an easy first step to take. Send 
for our free Personality-Aptitude Analyzer. It's a 
simple exercise you can take in about ten minutes. 
Then return it to us and we'JI mail you the results.

cannot qualify.) It could be well worth ten minutes of 
your time.

Born at the age of 128. 

Hanes Corporation was born February 26, 1965. Yet, it is 128 years old. 

You see, Hanes Corporation is the result of the merger of P. H. Hanes Knitting 

Company, 63 years old, and Hanes Hosiery Mills Company, 65 years old. 

Combined age? 128 years. 

This combination of youth and age is actually quite 

descriptive of Hanes Corporation. 

Young in ideas. 

Young in energy and enthusiasm. 

Young in excitement. 

But old in experience, maturity, and stability. 
So you can look to Hanes Corporation and its more than 9,000 employees to 
continue to offer the best in fine products for the whole family. 

Ladies' seamless stockings. 

Underwear for men and boys. 

Infants' and children's wear. Sleepwear. 

Sportswear and athletic uniforms. 

Socks for men and children. 

And the most important product of all:

Community leader. Independent merchant. This General Motors dealer is both. 

He's a good neighbor in many ways. Such as providing automobiles for driver 
training classes or making his facilities available for civic meetings. He's active 
in community affairs, youth activities and other worthwhile projects. More than 
likely, he's a church member, club member, participator — the kind of man you'd 
like to have living next door. 

His business is service . . . and he knows his business. He wins customers by sell- 
ing good products. He keeps customers by servicing those products. Customer 
good will is his primary asset. He earns it by his continuing efforts to make 
owning a General Motors car a truly satisfying experience. 

He's a good man to know. 

General Motors Is People...

We at Charlotte College were de- 
lighted to have an item on President 
Bonnie Cone in the April issue of the 
Duke Alumni Register. However, may 
I point out that you have her in the 
class of '31 when actually she is of 
the class of '41. I point this out in 
case there might be some mix-up in 
her alumni records. 

Kenneth Sanford 
Public Relations Officer 
Charlotte, North Carolina 

Our sincere apologies to President 
Cone for a typographical oversight of 
ten years, and our congratulations on 
her recent appointment as Acting 
Chancellor when Charlotte College 
becomes the University of North 
Carolina at Charlotte on July 1. 



Looking through your book on the 
silver anniversary of the class of 1940, 

I was shocked to find my husband 
listed as a Commander. He is a 
Captain in the Navy with a most 
distinguished record of service. He 
was a night fighter pilot in World War 

II and a squadron commander in 
Korea. He has a masters degree in 
Political Science from the University 
of Pennsylvania. Received the medal 
of Commendation from the Air Force 
for his liaison work with them in air 
defense command. He has two letters 
of commendation one from the De- 
partment of State and one from 
Defense. He is at present Desk Officer 
for the Department of Defense 
representing them for Indonesia, the 
Philippines, Malaya and Guam. 

Mrs. Dugald T. Neill 
Alexandria, Virginia 

Our apologies to both Captain and 
Mrs. Neill, we have corrected our 
records accordingly. 


Now Available 


Alumni may now more fully participate in the intellectual life of 
the University by listening to tape recordings of major campus 
speakers. The recordings are available to both individuals and alumni 
groups without charge, and may be played on any standard tape 
recorder. Send requests to: Recordings, Department of Alumni Af- 
fairs,, Duke University. Additional selections will be announced. 
Currently available are: 

• Dr. Douglas M. Knight, Bacca- 
laureate Sermon, Duke Chapel, 
June 6, 1965. Man's pursuit of hap- 
piness in the medium of time is Dr. 
Knight's topic. Using frequent ref- 
erences from literature and scrip- 
ture, he urges degree candidates to 
become masters of time and not its 
servant. Time: 30 minutes. B284. 

• Dr. Gordon N. Ray, Commence- 
ment Address, Indoor Stadium, 
June 7, 1965. A distinguished 
scholar and president of the Gug- 
genheim Foundation, Dr. Ray dis- 
cusses the critical issue of arts and 
humanities in an age of technology. 
What shall man become? How can 
the arts and humanities serve man? 
These questions, and current steps 
being taken at the federal level to 
strengthen these areas, are discussed. 
Time: 45 minutes. B281. 

•Vice-President Hubert H. Hum- 
phrey, Indoor Stadium, April 24, 
1965. The Vice-President queries: 
"What can we Americans ask of 
each other in 1965?" His remarks 
touch many issues of vital signifi- 
cance: Viet Nam, poverty, civil 
rights, education and foreign policy. 
About 40 minutes. B254. 

• Dr. John Kenneth Galbraith, 
Page Auditorium, April 9, 1965. 
Author of The Affluent Society and 
former Ambassador to India, Dr. 

Galbraith delivers a far-ranging talk 
on modern foreign policy. He uses 
Viet Nam to illustrate the need for 
"practical accommodation" based on 
self-interest with Russia and China. 
The cold war theories of "Impla- 
cable conflict" with the Communist 
bloc, he claims, have become out- 
moded. About 55 minutes. B243A 

•Dr. Martin Luther King, Page 
Auditorium, November 1964. Dr. 
King calls for a realistic appraisal 
of civil rights issues. Two false as- 
sumptions, he claims, stand in the 
way of integration: the idea that 
time can bring about change; and 
the notion that legislation can't 
solve the problem. About 1 hour. 
B224A & B. 

• Dr. Douglas M. Knight, UNC 
Commencement, June 7, 1965. 
Attacking the North Carolina 
speaker ban law, Dr. Knight charges 
that it could have adverse effects 
on both the education and economy 
of the state. (The law bans Com- 
munists or people who have pleaded 
the fifth amendment for speaking 
at state-supported institutions. ) 
"The real issue," he says, "is the 
control of a great university." This 
recording also includes Governor 
Dan K. Moore's comments on the 
controversial law, which were 
delivered from the same platform. 
About 45 minutes. B282.

By Gordon Norton Ray 

Though they have much in common, the arts and the humanities are far from bein? 
identical, a fact that is obscured by ma?iy of their contemporary popular advocates. 

My topic is the position and prospects of the 
arts and the humanities in the United States 
today. The past few years have witnessed a 
growing concern for both. More young Americans 
than ever before want to be painters, sculptors, print 
makers, writers, composers, and performing artists of 
various kinds. There is a vast and growing public for 
paperback editions of current writing, for recordings of 
serious music, for original works of art and for expert 
reproductions of these works, and for dramatic and 
musical performances. The humanities are less ob- 
viously in the public eye. Indeed, as Mr. Knight once 
illustrated by a delightful anecdote, they are "quiet 
things" which make their impression primarily through 
the orderly processes of education, above all higher 
education. But as our educational establishment has 
grown, they have had their due part in this growth. 

Though the arts and the humanities have many 
links, nothing is to be gained by pretending that their 
interests are always the same. In his classic preface to 
The Nigger of the Narcissus Joseph Conrad defines art 
as "a singleminded attempt to render the highest kind 
of justice to the visible universe." "The artist descends 
within himself," Conrad continues, "and in that lonely 
region of stress and strife, if he be deserving and 
fortunate, he finds the terms of his appeal. . . . The 
artist appeals to that part of our being which is not 
dependent on wisdom; to that in us which is a gift and 
not an acquisition — and, therefore, more permanently 
enduring. He speaks to our capacity for wonder and 
delight, to the sense of mystery surrounding our lives; 
to our sense of pity, and beauty, and pain; to the latent 
feeling of fellowship with all creation; and to the subtle 
but invincible conviction of solidarity that knits together 
the loneliness of innumerable hearts." For the artist, 
then, the root of the matter is his individual mind and 
sensibility. His work is institutionalized at its peril. He

has a significance to his contemporaries, moreover, 
which is only partially to be gauged by the absolute 
value of what he does, since he is interpreting directly 
for them the immediately surrounding world which he 
and they share. 

The role of the humanist is far less personal and 
dramatic, far more critical and analytic. He is con- 
cerned primarily with the supreme accomplishments in 
mankind's vast heritage from the past. The whole 
corpus of literature, art, music, history, philosophy, and 
religion needs his constant reordering and revaluation 
to keep it available in the best form for today's public. 
His work is cooperative, and his natural habitat for 
carrying on this work is the university community. 

Thus it must be emphasized that, though the 
humanities are fed by the contemporary arts, the two 
are far from being identical. The artist is concerned 
with what he creates; the humanist is concerned, among 
other things, with experiencing and studying the artist's 
creations. From the humanist's point of view, the con- 
temporary arts might be described as humanities in the 

If we seek to explain to ourselves America's 
enhanced interest in the arts and the humanities, an 
interest which — as we shall shortly see — is on the point 
of receiving formal recognition from the federal govern- 
ment, we can best start, I think, by considering the 
undefined but perceptible disillusionment with the condi- 
tions of contemporary civilization which can be sensed 
everywhere. Last year the Gallup Institute compiled 
what it called an "International Satisfaction Index," 
the purpose of which was to discover the degree to 
which the leading countries of the western world are 
content with their lot. Only in such small, non-nuclear 
countries as Switzerland, Norway, and Denmark was 
self-confidence found to predominate. The most wide- 
spread discontent was expressed in France, Britain, and 
the United States. And whereas the respondents even 
in these countries were on the whole satisfied with their 

housing, their family income, the work that they do, 
and the amount of leisure time afforded them, general 
unhappiness was recorded in non-material areas. They 
expressed anxiety about the position of their country in 
the world today, the future facing themselves and their 
families, and the honesty and standards of behavior in 
their country. Perhaps I can suggest why by a pair of 

Last June, I attended a conference at the Aspen 
Institute for the Humanities in Colorado where a num- 
ber of frontline business executives were given a pre- 
view of the results of Fortune's survey of some 1,600 
men between 30 and 45 in 150 large companies who 
have attained "the upper slopes of a big corporation, 
. . . the ground about the areas occupied by top 
management." These men were found to be very dif- 
ferent from the automaton-like "organization men" 
described by William H. Whyte, Jr., a decade ago. 
They are aggressive, confident, and hard-working. 
They believe in their company and the jobs they do for 
it, but they also know that "there is a world elsewhere," 
and they are quite willing to return to this world if the 
need arises. Altogether, they are a credit to American 

Yet Fortune's investigators also found that in cer- 
tain ways these men are very limited. They are pri- 
marily doers and problem-solvers, and nearly all of 
their intelligence goes into their jobs. Many of them 
prefer television to reading. If they read at all, it is 
usually in publications related to their work or facile 
thrillers of the "James Bond" variety. As a group, 
indeed, they are actively anti-intellectual. "To the 
young executive," Fortune continues (June, 1964), 
"speculative thought . . . belongs to another culture, 
which he neither understands nor has any curiosity 
about. Like some scientists, he has little understanding 
of, and less interest in, the liberal arts. In an academic 
sense, the young executive does not know what the 
humanities are. He has no grasp of good literature. He 
has never heard the music of the spheres. He would 
not recognize it if he did. And he could not care less. 
He is completely 'job-oriented' and 'result oriented.' " 

The company vice presidents, presidents and board 
chairmen to whom these tidings were reported were sur- 
prised and disheartened. Some of them questioned the 
validity of Fortune's sample; others said that men of 
this pattern were not the sort sought by their particular 
companies. Most ielt that at any rate such men were 
hardly suitable for top management. They would be 
deficient in the wide background and broad perspective 
that are needed by those who control the destinies of 
big companies in dealing with the complex relationships 
existing today between business and government and 
between business and society as a whole. Men of a less 

pragmatic and competitive kind, who could read, ob- 
serve, and reflect on large issues, would be better 
choices for the highest business positions. 

I turn now to my second example. As our news- 
papers remind us every morning, we are living in a 
country faced by formidable problems of poverty and 
social injustice. Yet at the same time our age is one of 
vast potential plenty. A famous scientist has told me 
that the problems of production have now been so 
completely resolved, in theory at least, that within 25 
years all the people not merely of the United States 
but of the world could be brought up to a comfortable 
standard of living. Such a consummation is obviously 
much to be desired. Yet even if it comes about, the 
human condition would not be fundamentally altered. 
Prosperity and leisure would present their difficulties, 
just as have hard times, if the ideals of our civilization 
continue to be defined entirely in material terms. 

I can best illustrate this proposition by describing 
to you a prophetic classic of modern science fiction, 
Frederik Pohl's The Midas Plague. This is a story of 
the not very remote future, when a materialistic culture 
has assumed total control. Science and technology have 
provided abundance beyond mankind's wildest dreams, 
and the problems even of the service industries have 
been completely resolved by the creation of hundreds of 
millions of robots who carry out the tasks which today 
with increasing difficulty we must still persuade human 
beings to perform. 

There is only one drawback to this seeming para- 
dise: all this abundance must be used. Human life has 
accordingly been reduced to perpetual consumption. 
The most important document in each citizen's pos- 
session is the ration book which sets forth his consump- 
tion quotas, and society is arranged in a strict hierarchy 
in line with the requirements there noted. Grade One 
families, at one end of the scale, are forced to five 
in mansions of 25 rooms with five cars and nine robots, 
where they devote every waking hour to frantic con- 
sumption. At the other end of the scale are Grade 
Eight families, which dwell in five room cottages, where 
they are permitted to waste good consuming time by 
hoeing their gardens or playing cards. As a supreme 
reward, their members are even allowed to work a day 
or two a week. 

As the Horatio Alger of this society, where progress 
is from riches to rags, rather than the reverse, Mr. Pohl 
tells of the struggles of a young and talented designer 
who works his way down from Grade One to Grade 
Eight. When we first meet him, his assigned task is to 
devise new ways of stimulating consumption. One of 
his successes is a variation on "the one-arm bandit, the 
pinball machine, the juke box. You put your ration 
book in the hopper. You spun the wheels until you

selected the game you wanted to play against the 
machine. ... If you risked a ten-point ration stamp — 
showing, perhaps, that you had consumed three six- 
course meals — your statistic return was eight points. 
You might hit the jackpot and get a thousand points 
back, and thus be exempt from a whole freezerful of 
steaks and joints and prepared vegetables; but it seldom 
happened. Most likely you lost and got nothing." 

To save his frail wife, whose appetite is feeble, our 
hero determines to consume for two; and by this ordeal 
he is gradually led into a subversive frame of mind in 
which he no longer regards waste as a mortal sin. A 
brilliant solution to his delemma occurs to him: he will 
use his robots to consume his ration quotas. Soon his 
consumption record surpasses all others. He is moved 
rapidly down the scale to Grade Eight, and at last he 
receives a summons from the all-powerful Ration 

Board. He reports in fear and trembling, feeling that 
the day of retribution is at hand. But he discovers 
instead that he is a national hero. 

He is allowed to work out a program of consuming- 
robot units with adjustable satisfaction circuits for the 
whole country. The day arrives for a demonstration of 
his program: "The robots manufactured hats of all 
sorts. He adjusted the circuits at the end of the day 
and the robots began trying on the hats, squabbling 
over them, each coming away triumphantly with a huge 
and diverse selection. Their metallic features were 
incapable of showing pride or pleasure, but both were 
evident in the way they wore their hats, their fierce 
possessiveness . . . and their faster, neater, more inten- 
sive, more dedicated work to produce a still greater 
quantity of hats . . . which they also were allowed to

A tiny spectator requires special attention back stage. 

" 'And that can apply to anything we — or the 
robots — produce.' he added. 'Everything from pins to 
yachts. But the point is that they get satisfaction from 
possession, and the craving can be regulated according 
to the glut in various industries, and the robots show 
their appreciation by working harder. . . .' " 

"And so the inexorable laws of supply and demand 
were irrevocably repealed. No longer was mankind 
hampered by inadequate supply or drowned by over- 
production. What mankind needed was there. What 
the race did not require passed into the insatiable — and 
adjustable — robot maw. Nothing was wasted." 

Of course this is a fantastic tale. But it does drama- 
tize powerful tendencies in our current mode of exis- 
tence, and there is a dreadful plausibility about its 
picture of what the future might hold. The moral of the 
fable is summed up in Lewis Mumford's recent ob- 
servation that we may be moving towards "an increas- 
ingly purposeless and irrational world, to which only 
machines, with no internally transmitted history and no 
spontaneous inner promptings could be permanently 

What do the arts and the humanities offer that will 
help to prepare our young executives for bigger jobs, 
that will keep society in general from falling into a way 
of life fit only for machines? Their great gift is to 
ingrain in those who become familiar with them a 
devotion to the life of the mind and a scale of values 
not predominantly material. They remind us that the 
defects of our society are only in part the result of our 
physical environment, that many of them reflect radical 
defects in human nature which may even be intensified 
by improvements in our material condition. 

Let me risk a bold but, I hope, not distasteful ex- 
ample of my point. Take a practical man who is proud 
of avoiding "useless speculation," who perhaps boasts 
that he hasn't read a book in years. Confront him with 
the prospect of death — not death in the abstract or ten 
years hence, but his own death in the next few weeks. 
There is a chance, I suppose, that he may respond in 
the way suggested by one of Charles Addams' most 
mordant inspirations, a cartoon showing a funeral 
procession in which the hearse is followed by an 
armored car, with an onlooker observing: "I see so-and- 
so has decided that you can take it with you." But a 
more likely reaction is a profound upheaval in his way 
of looking at his world, a comprehensive reversal of 
what is and what is not important to his eyes. All the 
trappings of his life drop away. Questions rush in upon 
him which he has no notion of how to answer. If he 
had been accustomed to considering life "under the ap- 
pearance of eternity," he would not thus find himself in 
this supreme crisis as helpless and bewildered as a 
small child. This is what E. M. Forster means when he 
writes in Howards End: "Death destroys a man, but the 
idea of death saves him — that is the best account of it 
that has yet been given." 

What does the immediate future seem to hold for 
the arts and the humanities? The novel element in their 
situation in the United States today is the notice which 
is being taken of them by the federal government. This 
recognition has not come about by chance. For more 
than two years concerted campaigns have been con- 
ducted to bring into being organizations in the arts and 
in the humanities on the pattern of the National Science 
Foundation. Partial success was achieved in the former 
field last year with the establishment by Public Law 
88-579 of a National Council on the Arts in the Execu- 
tive Office of the President. Meanwhile, a Com- 
mission on the Humanities appointed by the American 
Council of Learned Societies, the Council of Graduate 
Schools, and the United Chapters of Phi Beta Kappa 
had submitted a report stressing "two fundamental 
points: (1) that expansion and improvement of activ- 
ities in the humanities are in the national interest and 
consequently deserve financial support by the federal 


government; and (2) that federal funds for this purpose 
should be administered by a new independent agency to 
be known as the National Humanities Foundation." 
When President Johnson last September told an 
audience at Brown University's bi-centennial celebra- 
tion that he favored a National Foundation for the 
Humanities, this became a bandwagon cause, and 
scores of Senators and Representatives were soon vying 
with each other in supporting it. 

The result of these developments is House of 
Representatives Bill 6051, now before the Congress, 
which I suspect may well be signed into law. It pro- 
vides for a National Foundation on the Arts and the 
Humanities which is to have within it both a National 
Endowment for the Arts and a National Endowment 
for the Humanities, each with its separate Chairman 
and Council. There is also to be a coordinating group 
known as the Federal Council on the Arts and the 
Humanities, consisting of the two Chairmen and 
various Washington officials such as the United States 
Commissioner of Education and the Director of the 
National Science Foundation. The Arts Endowment 
and the Humanities Endowment are to receive $5 
million apiece for the fiscal year 1966, and there is the 
further provision that another $5 million apiece may be 
provided to match funds privately contributed. 

This oddly bifurcated structure, with its coordinat- 
ing council made up chiefly of persons unlikely to be 
either artist or humanists, can hardly be regarded as a 
triumph of administrative organization. It was evolved 
because the establishment by the current Congress of 
the two separate foundations which are really needed 
was deemed to be politically impossible, and neither the 
artists nor the humanists wanted a single administration. 
It is clear indeed that at present the two groups will 
have the best chance of continuing on friendly terms 
if they observe the admonition that good fences make 
good neighbors. I remember a drastically miscalculated 
address last winter, when it was still thought that the 
lion would be asked to lie down with the lamb, by one 
of the congressional sponsors of the bill to an audience 
of specialist scholars in the humanities assembled by 
the American Council of Learned Societies. The ex- 
pression on the face of one learned austere and art 
historian as our speaker ecstatically expatiated on the 
cultural wonders to be worked by performances of 
Shakespeare on street corners was something to behold. 
I walked away with a professor of English who re- 
marked that for the first time in his life he had been 
made to feel that he had more in common with physi- 
cists than with creative writers. There may well have 
been similarly misconceived pep rallies for artists which 
had the effect of temporarily disillusioning them with 
the humanities. At any rate, it may be noted in passing 

that during this phase of the proceedings, the sup- 
porters of the arts were far more afraid of being 
outmaneuvered under a single administration than were 
the supporters of the humanities. "They will steal us 
blind," was the forceful if inelegant way in which a 
member of the former group put the matter. 

Some exception might also be taken to the modest 
budget which the bill provides, for in terms of federal 
expenditures $10 million, even with the prospect of 
another $10 million in matching funds, is modest 
indeed. Spread among fifty states, and we have to as- 
sume that federal money will be very widely dispersed, 
there will be little enough for any single purpose, how- 
ever worthy. But we should remember that the first 
appropriation for the National Science Foundation after 
its establishment in 1950 was $225,000 for the year 
ending in June, 1951, whereas by 1963 the appropria- 
tion had risen to $322,500,000. Moreover, from the 
beginning the very existence of a National Foundation 
on the Arts and the Humanities ought to have real 
symbolic importance. Just as private foundations count 
on a "multiplier factor" in the grants which they are 
able to make from their limited funds, so there should 
be a "multiplier factor" in small federal grants deriving 
from the lead which they will give to state, municipal, 
and private agencies. 

Despite the reservations which I have expressed, 
we should certainly welcome with enthusiasm the new 
National Foundation on Arts and the Humanities. 
When and if it comes into being. But we should do so 
in the full realization that the welfare of the arts and 
the humanities in the United States will continue to 
depend primarily on the efforts of individual artists and 
humanists. At first glance the battle between sensitivity 
and intelligence on the one hand and vulgarity and 
ignorance on the other may seem hopelessly unequal. 
All around us advertising portrays from billboards, in 
magazines, and on television screens a society of 
healthy, smiling mental defectives, the epiphanies in 
whose lives appear to be those moments in which they 
opt for this or that brand of beer, detergent, or 
cigarette. How can Mr. Reynolds Price writing a short 
story or Mr. Lionel Stevenson lecturing on the Pre- 
Raphaelites possibly counter-balance these strident 
blatancies? Yet somehow their efforts and those of 
thousands of other notable creative artists and scholar- 
teachers have their effect. Each year more Americans 
come to believe with John Stuart Mill that "It is better 
to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied, 
better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied. 
And if the fool, or the pig, is of a different opinion, it 
is because they only know their own side of the 
question." Through this process high civilization is 
preserved and even extended.

There are no easy roads to wisdom, Dr. Knight tells graduates, but it is of the utmost 
importancefor every educated man andwoma?i to seek knowledge and understanding 

One great quality that you possess as educated 
people is the understanding that life is not a 
static affair," University President Douglas M. 
Knight told graduates in the Duke Chapel on Sunday 

Following a precedent he set after becoming presi- 
dent, Dr. Knight again preached the baccalaureate 
sermon to an overflow audience of graduates, their 
families and friends. And his remarks had a warmth 
and freshness to match the bright June morning. 

Observing that, like St. Paul, we are all obsessed 
with time and its urgencies, Dr. Knight pointed out that 
it is important to make the best use of time. If we are 
happy with things as they are we will never develop 
beyond that state. Moreover, by attempting to main- 
tain things as they are we invariably lose them, he said. 

Quite appropriate to Commencement Sunday, at a 
time of beginning, Dr. Knight asked the graduates to 
consider the spectacle of man walking the boundaries 
of his own ignorance, "for we never pretended to you 

at Duke that we knew the easy roads to wisdom or that 
we ourselves were wise." 

Reality works through time which means change, 
impermanence, growth and decay. Time is both a gift 
and a privilege, and it should be used to the best 
advantage. It is important to realize that "your own 
existence as an individual is remarkable in its temporal 
possibilities and in its temporal limits," Dr. Knight said. 

In conclusion, Dr. Knight stressed the need for a 
perceptive grasp of time and of men in time, yet beyond 
it. And he illustrated his point with this quotation from 
Shakespeare's Tempest: "These our actors,/ As I fore- 
told you, were all spirits, and/ Are melted into air, into 
thin air; And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,/ 
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,/ The 
solemn temples, the great globe itself,/ Yea, all which 
it inherit, shall dissolve;/ And, like this insubtantial 
pageant faded,/ Leave not a rack behind. We are such 
stuff/ As dreams are made on, and our little life/ Is 
rounded by a sleep." 

The overflow crowd listened to the 
Baccalaureate Services over 
loudspeakers in the Chapel Grove 


// was a busy weekend for returning alumni who kept on the go greeting old friends and renewing acquaintances. 


Reunion '65 was bigger and better than ever for all the returning alumni and 
reunion classes as they came back to the campus to renew their ties with alma mater. 

Superficially it may seem as if Barnum & Bailey 
were playing in conjunction with a convention of 
Kiwanis International. People have a good and 
hectic time. But college reunions and all the other 
alumni activities at Commencement have a reality more 


meaningful than the expected round of parties and 
speeches, and handshakes and hugs. Amidst all the 
hubbub one seems to search for perspective, for the 
meaning of time past and of neglected friendships, for 
the meaning of feelings that were once revelations and 

that now are dreams. One searches the past, then, in 
order to interpret the present. 

Such a search, however, is a private matter. It 
cannot be seen — except maybe in a pair of eyes 
momentarily lost in the remembrance of some distant 
landscape or feeling. So one is left, finally, with the 
outward events, with the good and hectic times. 

Many alumni returned at Commencement. 

General Alumni Dinner 

The annual dinner meeting of the University's 
General Alumni Association, held in the hot and 
cavernous Great Hall, was sold out this year as ap- 
proximately 500 alumni attended. The only event 
marring an otherwise pleasant evening was the absence 
of the speaker and guest of honor — University Presi- 
dent Douglas M. Knight. He was recovering from a 
bout with the mumps. However, Dr. Harold W. Lewis, 
vice provost and dean of arts and sciences, substituted 

The meeting, which provides the only opportunity 
during the year when all alumni can assemble to con- 
duct the business of the Association, was highlighted by 
an optimistic report from Dr. Ben N. Miller '32, MD 
'35, University trustee and chairman of the 1964-65 
Loyalty Fund Advisory Committee. Fourteen thousand 
donors, he said, had contributed $560,000 at that 
time. His optimistic tone was justified by later events, 
for on June 30 the campaign closed with $576,003.25 
from 14,492 donors. Although the number of donors 
fell short of the goal of 15,000, the total amount of 
money raised exceeded the $575,000 goal set last year 
by the National Council. 

The Loyalty Fund was also the object of attention 
when the Golden and Silver Anniversary Gifts were 
presented to the University. L. L. Ivey presented the 
Class of 1915's gift of $10,000 from 45 donors. The 
Class of 1940 presented its gift of $35,166.25 from 
264 donors through Nevin Stetler, class president. The 
gifts were accepted on behalf of the University by Dr. 

Awarded special recognition at the meeting were 14 
retiring faculty members: Dr. Wally Reichenberg- 
Hackett, Mr. Howard N. Haines, Dr. Frank G. Hall, 
Dr. Charles E. Landon, Dr. Ernest W. Nelson, Dr. 
Joseph B. Rhine, Dr. Hertha D. E. Sponer, Miss Julia 
R. Grout, Dr. Herbert J. Herring, Dr. Paul M. Gross, 
Dr. Duncan C. Hetherington, Dr. Authur O. Hickson, 
Dr. Eugenia R. Whitridge, and Dr. Mary Poteat. 

As these people retired from active service to the 
University, an even larger group was called upon to 
begin the first year of many years of service. Approxi- 
mately 1,000 new graduates were inducted into the 
Association. These new members of the alumni body

commitment to excellence at the Alumni Dinner. 

were represented by Craig W. Worthington and Susan 
Guest. William F. Franck '39, presiding, expressed his 
hope that "the Class of 1965 will share with all of its 
predecessors a persistent concern for the University's 
work and welfare." 

Class Reunions 

As usual the anniversary classes seemed to set the 
most hectic pace of all the classes that returned for 
campus reunions. This year it was the Golden Anniver- 
sary Class of 1915. Silver Anniversary Class of 1940, 
and Tenth Anniversary Class of 1955. Also on campus 
for organized reunions were the Classes of 1916 and 
1917, the Classes of 1929, 1930, 1931, and 1932, the 
Classes of 1944, 1945, and 1946, and the Half Century 

The weekend of June 4-7 contained a highlight for 
each of the reunion groups. These were some of them: 
the luncheon on Sunday when the Class of 1915 was 
inducted into the Half Century Club and ceased to 
function as a separate group; the entire weekend for 
the Class of 1940; a Sunday luncheon for the Class of 
1955 when Bill Griffith showed up to answer questions 
and might still be there if people had not been leaving 


BETTER THAN EVER . . . continued 

The classes of '44-46 held a joint reunion dinner-dance 
at the Jack Tar Hotel which was one of the highlights 
of the weekend, and the Half Century Club inducted 

its newest members, the class of '15, to swell its mem- 
bership. While the annual golf tournament drew a large 
crowd of club swingers to the course on a beautiful day. 


for home; the joint luncheon meeting on Sunday of the 
Classes of 1916 and 1917 when Mrs. Turlington 
presided and John Dozier spoke about the University; 
cocktails and dinner at The Blair House for the Classes 
of 1929-32 when 106 people came to be served; and 
for the Classes of 1944-46 an open house on Saturday 
evening at the Durham home of Ann and Charlie 

In addition to the reunion groups, every other class 
from 1918 to 1964 were represented on campus. These 
alumni, together with those from reunion classes, were 
able to participate in a number of activities planned 
especially for everyone. 

Alumni Lectures 

The Seventh Annual Alumni Lecture Series was 
concerned with a timely topic: "Communism in India 
and China: A Study in Contrast." In spite of some last 
minute confusion as to just where the lectures were 
going to be held, 270 alumni crowded into the 
auditorium of the Biological Sciences Building to hear 
three professors of history explain why the Communists 
have so far failed in India while succeeding in China. 
The lecturers pointed out similarities between China 
and India, such as the fact that both suffer from poverty 
and over-population. Such dissimilar factors, however, 
as internal leadership and military events have con- 
tributed to the success of Communism in the one 
country while denying it in the other. (These lectures 
will be published in full in a future issue of the Alumni 
Register — Editor. ) 

The lecturers were Professor Robert I. Crane and 
Assistant Professor Donald Gillin. Assistant Professor 
Warren Lerner was moderator. 

Other Activities 

Garland Wolfe '46 and his wife, Nettie Lou, were 
the chairmen who produced this year's successful 
Alumni Golf Tournament. One hundred and forty-six 
contestants competed for a record number of trophies. 
The fact that a good number of them were won by 
alumni is amazing, for the tournament is also open to 
faculty and staff who have an opportunity to play over 
the Duke course throughout the year. 

In addition to golf, all alumni were able to hop 
aboard the buses that had been chartered for campus 
tours. A large number did. Then, on two evenings 
during the weekend, these same alumni had an op- 
portunity to see the Hoof 'n' Horn Club's production 
of the Cole Porter musical Out of this World. 

Last but not least, certainly from a parent's point of 
view, was the Junior- Versity Program which kept the 
children entertained while the adults played. "A 
marvelous idea," said one alumnus. 

For pint-sized swingers, Junior-versity provided a well 
rounded program of energy-consuming events for all.

This year s meeting of the Duke University National Council turned to be one of 
the most important in its eighteen year history as ambitious plans were made.

tional Council may qualify as the most significant 
in the 18-year history of the organization. In ad- 
dition to conducting annual business, such as the election 
of new officers, Council members were given advance 
information about the first phase of the University's 10- 
year $187,411,000 development program. The mem- 
bers also adopted motions requiring tremendous growth 
of the Annual Loyalty Fund Campaign to insure that 
adequate operating funds will be available both during 
and after the University's expansion. 


Duke s $102 million program 

Advance information about the development pro- 
gram was given by Wright Tisdale, chairman of the 
University board of trustees and vice president and 
general counsel of the Ford Motor Company. Mr. 
Tisdale, substituting for University President Douglas 
M. Knight, who was recuperating from the mumps, said 
that the University will raise $102,876,000 during the 
three-year first phase of the program. He noted that 
pledges of $21,812,000 had already been received and 

that $18,830,000 is anticipated from government grants 
and loans. "This means," he said, "that $40,642,000 
of the three-year goal already has been raised or antic- 
ipated, leaving $62,234,000 to be acquired during 
the next three years." 

The alumnus with the major share of responsibility 
for raising this sum is George V. Allen '24, LLD '49, 
a career ambassador of the United States who assumed 
the presidency of The Tobacco Institute after retiring 
from the Foreign Service. Mr. Allen, as chairman of a 
National Steering Committee which will oversee the 
campaign, explained that the $102,876,000 will be used 
as follows: $75,576,000 for physical plant needs; 
$15,000,000 for additional endowment; and $12,300,- 
000 for current budget support. "These funds are 
absolutely essential to the needs of Duke University," 
he said. "The campaign itself is essential because the 
dimensions of the tasks which face us are now many 
times larger than the resources upon which we have 
traditionally depended in the past." 

Mr. Allen emphasized the fact that the Loyalty 
Fund will remain an indispensable source of annual 
operating income for the University throughout and 
after the capital campaign. Funds contributed through 
the Loyalty Fund during the next three years, he 
pointed out, will be included in the $102,876,000 goal 
— specifically a part of the $12,300,000 current budget 

Loyalty Fund Vital 

The importance of obtaining operating funds 
through the Loyalty Fund to support the University's 
growth was stressed by Dr. Ben N. Miller '32, MD '35, 
1964-65 chairman of the Loyalty Fund Advisory Com- 
mittee. He reported that as of June 5, $560,000 had 
been given to the University through the Loyalty Fund 
by 14,000 donors. He expected that the goal of $575,- 
000 would be reached by the end of the campaign on 
June 30, an expectation that was later realized when 
the final tally showed that $576,003,25 had been re- 
ceived from 14,492 donors. He emphasized, how- 
ever, that a greater effort would have to be made 
in the future if the University intended to advance its 
standing in the educational world. 

At this point in the meeting Edwin L. Jones, Jr., 
BSCE '48, a member of the Council's executive com- 
mittee, reported that the committee had taken into 
consideration the need for Loyalty Fund growth. The 
committee was therefore recommending, he said, that 
the Loyalty Fund attain a $1,000,000 goal by 1967-78. 
This goal, he explained, would be approached through 
three stages, with next year's goal being $675,000 and 
the 1966-67 goal $800,000. By 1967-68 the Loyalty 
Fund will attain its minimum goal of providing $1,000,- 
000 annual operating income for the University. 

Mr. Jones then moved that the committee's recom- 
mendations be adopted. The motion was quickly 
seconded and passed by unanimous voice vote. 

New Officers Elected 

W. Horace Corbett '38, presiding, called for elec- 
tion of the new officers who will provide important 
leadership as the Loyalty Fund progresses toward its 
record goal. After a report from the nominating com- 
mittee by Lucie O'Brien Milner (Mrs. John) '42, the 
following officers were elected: Thomas F. Hewitt '28, 
chairman; Ray J. Tysor '21, vice chairman; Charles 
B. Wade, Jr., '38, T. Reuben Waggoner '22, and 
Louise Sellars Gillespie (Mrs. John M.) '33, members 
of the executive committee; and Milton E. Harrington 
'31, Dr. Richard G. Connar '41, MD '44, Charles S. 
Murphy '31, LLB '34, Alex Copeland, Jr., '37, and 
Ruth Gambill Miller (Mrs. Ben) RN '36, members-at- 

Mr. Hewitt, the new chairman, resides in Kinston, 
N. C, and is a partner in the LaRoque & Hewitt Com- 
pany. The new vice chairman, Mr. Tysor, is a con- 
sultant to the North Carolina National Bank and 
former owner of the Tysor Realty & Mortgage Com- 
pany in Greensboro, N. C. 

Committee Reports 

Reports were also heard at the meeting from the 
following three standing committees of the Council: 
Bequest Program, the alumni admissions advisory com- 
mittees, and local Duke alumni associations. Mr. 
Jones, substituting for J. Alexander McMahon '42, 
chairman of the Bequest Program, said that 600 individ- 
uals have revealed definite bequest commitments 
to the University while another 175 have indicated that 
they plan to do so. A special effort will be made during 
the coming year to increase the number of participants 
to 1,000. 

Mrs. Gillespie, chairman of the alumni admissions 
advisory committee, reported that the number of area 
advisory committees had been increased from seven to 
79 in as many different areas. This increase indicates 
the success of the program, she said, and an effort will 
be made during 1965-66 to expand it even further. 

Reporting for the local associations committee, 
Richard Maxwell '55 explained that it had been decided 
that a local association should be developed in every 
area where 50 or more alumni reside. With this goal 
in mind, the committee took steps to establish approxi- 
mately 25 new local associations. Further attempts will 
be made during the coming year, he said, to expand 
local association organizations and provide each as- 
sociation with an appropriate program of activities. 



A chronicle of important events and developments at Duke University 

$102 Million Campaign 

The University has announced 
plans for conducting the largest 
capital gifts campaign ever under- 
taken by a Southern institution, and 
one of the largest in the Nation. 

To be launched in September, the 
three-year effort will seek to raise 
$102,876,000, which will implement 
the first phase of the University's 
recently approved 10-year expansion 
and improvement program estimated 
to cost $187,411,000. 

Announcement of the campaign 
plans came after a series of Com- 
mencement meetings of trustee, 
faculty and alumni groups. 

Trustee Chairman Wright Tisdale 
of Dearborn, Mich, said $75.5 million 
of the amount will be used for phys- 
ical plant needs, while $15 million 
will be added to the University's 
endowment, and $12.3 million will go 
for support of the annual budget. 
George V. Allen '24 of Washington, 
D. C, retired career diplomat who 
now is President of The Tobacco 
Institute, Inc., has accepted the job of 
General Chairman of the Campaign. 
Tisdale explained that Allen will be 
assisted by a National Steering Com- 
mittee to be named in the near future. 

He also explained that while the 
amount of money required between 
now and the end of 1968 has been set 
at $102.8 million, a large portion of 
this already has been raised or is 
anticipated. Specifically, Tisdale said 
that $21.8 million already has been 
received in pledges and another $18.8 
million is anticipated from govern- 
ment loans and grants. This leaves 
$62,234,000 which still must come 
during the next three years. 

Dr. Douglas M. Knight, Presi- 
dent of Duke University, cautioned 
that "these funds are not, however, an 


end in themselves. Our objective is 
to help Duke University serve the 
South and the Nation, as well as any 
University can, in every field which 
concerns us." 

"While construction and endow- 
ment needs are enormous, the in- 
crease in budget support poses one 
of our greatest challenges. I am 
particularly pleased, therefore, to be 
able to report that a significant step 
toward raising the $12.3 million 
required for this purpose has been 
taken by the Duke University alumni 
through their representatives on the 
Duke University National Council. 
The Council, which administers Duke's 
annual Loyalty Fund program, has 
reviewed the University's needs and 
its own goals for the next three years, 
and has accepted the challenge by 
pledging increased goals for each of 
these years." 

Southern Studies 

Creation of a Center for Southern 
Studies in the Social Sciences and 
Humanities at the University was an- 
nounced recently by President 
Douglas M. Knight. 

The Center will study various areas 
of Southern culture, including such 
subjects as the new role of the South- 
ern Negro, the emerging two-party 
system, and the out-migration of 
many of the region's better-educated 
young people. 

To begin operation this fall, it is 
the first facility of its kind in the 
nation. Other Southern institutions, 
including the University of North 
Carolina, have been active in South- 
ern studies over the years, but none 
have organized their efforts in a single 

In making the announcement, 
President Knight said: "The South 

and its culture have long been topics 
of interest to scholars in the social 
sciences and humanities. Now with 
the creation of the Center for South- 
ern studies, research in this area can 
be expanded and developed." 

He said a unique aspect of the 
Center will be encouraging an ex- 
change between scholars in different 

A committee headed by Dr. Edgar 
T. Thompson, professor of sociology, 
is in charge of organizing the Center. 
Dr. Thompson has a career-long 
interest in the South and its problems. 
He is author of a number of books 
and articles on race relations, agricul- 
ture, education, and social change in 
the region. 

The purpose of the Duke Center 
will be basic research, not "action" 
programs, according to Dr. Thomp- 
son. But he foresees that its future 
functions may include serving as an 
advisory body to groups trying to 
solve practical problems. 

Immediate goals are expanding 
research, encouraging doctoral candi- 
dates with Southern interests, sponsor- 
ing symposia on Southern subjects, 
encouraging publications dealing with 
the South, and similar activities. 

Initially, the Center will be entirely 
supported by the University. But of- 
ficials here hope it will attract outside 
funds as it expands. 

Members of Dr. Thompson's com- 
mittee comprise part of what Presi- 
dent Knight termed "the University's 
rather remarkable talent" in Southern 

They are Dr. lohn S. McGee, 
professor of economics; Dr. Joseph J. 
Spengler, James B. Duke Professor of 
Economics; Dr. Clarence Gohdes, 
James B. Duke Professor of English; 
Dr. Arlin Turner, professor of En- 
glish; Dr. John R. Alden, James B.

Duke Professor of History; Dr. John 
C. McKinney, professor of sociology; 
and Dr. Shelton Smith, James B. Duke 
Professor Emeritus of American 
Religious Thought. 

The committee will select an ad- 
visory board, which may include both 
Southern and non-Southern academi- 
cians, political leaders, and business- 
men as members. 

In addition to its faculty and non- 
university advisors, the Center will 
draw upon the 1,650,000 volumes and 
four million manuscripts in the Duke 
Library and upon regional studies 
now in progress or already completed 

Both Duke and its predecessor, 
Trinity College, have long been active 
in Southern studies. Since 1929, more 
than 100 doctoral dissertations and 
almost 300 books on various aspects 
of Southern life and thought have 
been produced by Duke professors 
and graduate students. A number of 
regional studies now are in progress 
in several departments. 

" 'Vietnam &f Beyo?id" 

Dr. Arthur Larson, special consul- 
tant to President Johnson on issues 
bearing on world peace, has described 
the United States' Vietnam policy as 
"out of date, transparent, and naive." 

The slashing attack is in a booklet, 
Vietnam and Beyond. It was co- 
authored by Dr. Larson, director of 
the Rule of Law Research Center in 
Law School, and his brother, Don R. 
Larson, a professor of political 

The Larsons recommend a policy 
of "selective containment" of Com- 
munism, rather than the existing 
"massive containment" approach. 
They explain that, under their pro- 
posal, the U. S. would do everything 
to keep Communism out of such 
highly-industrial nations as Japan. 
However, the Reds would be stuck 
with the high cost of supporting 
economically poor lands with few 
natural resources. 

Concerning our policy in Vietnam, 
the authors say: 

— "The deepest error of this policy 
is that it discards the prime test of 
a sound foreign policy — the weighing 
of all factors in a given situation 
favoring or hurting national interests 
. . . The most serious defect of the 
policy is that it is not working." 

— "How will Russia or China, 
themselves unable to feed their own 
people, satisfy tens of millions of 
hungry people in the poorer regions 
of Africa and Asia? ... If Commu- 
nism cannot feed its own people . . . 
how will its theories work in the kind 
of uncleared rain forests, exhausted 
ancient soils, and badly-drained river 
bottoms these marginal areas often 

— "Nothing could more speedily 
demonstrate the unworkability of 
Communism as a mode of economic 
organization than a few such negative

"carefully limiting the arena of their 
struggle to areas we know will do 
them more harm than good even if 
they win them." 

— 'The true fact is that the U. S. 
has had no obligation to South Viet- 
nam or anyone else under the SEATO 
treaty to use its own armed forces in 
the defense of South Vietnam." 

— Our existing policy threatens to

—Both SEATO and the UN offer 
ways of legally settling the Vietnam 
problem. Thus the U. S. could get 
out — "with honor." 

— Our military action in Vietnam 
threatens "escalation into major war 
against one-fourth of the world's 
population. . . ." 

Knight for UNESCO 

Secretary of State Dean Rusk has 
appointed Dr. Douglas M. Knight as 
one of eight new members to the 
U. S. National Commission for 
UNESCO. The appointment will run 
through the fall meeting of the Com- 
mission in 1967. 

The 100-member body advises the 
Government on UNESCO matters 
and serves as a link between organiza- 
tions, institutions and individuals in 
the United States and the United 

Charles A. Cannon 

Nations Education, Scientific and Cul- 
tural Organization (UNESCO). 

The Commission membership in- 
cludes representatives from 60 
national organizations interested in 
educational, scientific and cultural 
matters, 25 persons connected with 
Federal, State or local government, 
and 15 members at large. 

President of Duke for the past two 
years, Dr. Knight is extremely active 
at the national level. He is a member 
of the American Council on Educa- 
tion's Commission on International 
Education; a member of the corpora- 
tion of the Foundation for the Arts, 
Religion and Culture; and the 
National Science Foundation's Divi- 
sional Committee for Institutional 

Doctor s Helpers 

A new training program aimed at 
making medical services more readily 
available to patients and at easing 
the shortage of professional personnel 
will be instituted at Duke Medical 

The program, to train "physician's 
assistants" who would be similar to 
military medical corpsmen, will be one 
of four medical training programs to 
be set up with the aid of a five-year 
$900,000 grant from the Department 
of Health, Education and Welfare. 

The other programs will involve: 

John N. Couch 

— Training of hyperbaric oxygena- 
tion chamber technicians in the opera- 
tion and maintenance of the high- 
presssure chambers, one of medicine's 
newest experimental tools. 

— Two medical training programs, 
one in predoctoral and the other in 
postdoctoral hyperbaric oxygenation. 

The "physician's assistant" program 
will represent a new concept in para- 
medical education, according to Dr. 
Barnes Woodhall, vice provost for 
medical affairs. 

High school graduates would be 
trained in a special two-year program 
that would enable them to take over, 
under supervision, many of the 
routine duties of doctors as well as 
some tasks performed currently by 
nurses and technicians. 

Their training would include such 
courses as anatomy and physiology, 
surgery, and nursing principles to give 
them a well-rounded background for 
further on-the-job training in selected 
clinical areas of medicine. 

Duke officials believe that the new 
paramedical category may enable 
doctors, who are in short supply in 
many areas of the country, to bring 
their professional services to more 
people who need medical care. 

Until now, most of the chamber 
technicians have come from navy- 
trained deep-sea diving teams, Dr. 
Saltzman said, but a limited supply of 
trained individuals cannot meet the

He said that both the technicians 
and doctors who use hyperbaric 
medicine must be familiar with its 
potential hazards — minor ones such 
as the tendency of stoppered bottles 
to shatter under chamber pressure and 
major problems such as oxygen poi- 
soning and bends, a potentially fatal 
consequence of deep-sea diving.

Divinity Renewed 

Special services of dedication and

completion of a $450,000 renovation 
of The Divinity School facilities. 
Principal speaker for the ceremonies 
in Duke Chapel was Bishop Paul N. 
Garber of the Raleigh area of the 
Methodist Church. Completed in less 
than a year, the extensive moderniza- 
tion of the 35-year old Divinity and 
Gray Buildings covered classrooms, 
offices and administrative facilities of 
the department of religion and the 
Divinity School. Included were the 
upgrading of lighting and acoustical 
properties of teaching and public 
areas, rewiring, air conditioning, 
modernization of plumbing, replacing 
wooden flooring with tile, and con- 
struction of a distinctive new entrance 
to the Divinity School. 

A major addition to the Divinity 
School is part of the overall Univer- 
sity expansion program announced re- 
cently. Reorganization and expansion 
of the Divinity School Library is 
expected to begin next month, ac- 
cording to Dean Robert E. Cushman. 
It is part of the $7 million expansion 
of the main University Library. 

The Divinity School Library has 
been described by the dean of Ameri- 
can theological librarians as "the best- 
chosen collection of theology in the

New Aide for Students 

Dr. Cliff W. Wing, Jr., president of 

the Association of College Admissions 
Counselors from 1962-64, has been 
appointed to the newly-created posi- 
tion of Director of Student Resources 
at the University. Since 1956, Dr. 
Wing has been director of admissions 
at Tulane University. 

His appointment was announced by 
President Dr. Douglas M. Knight who 
explained that Dr. Wing also will 
serve as associate professor of psy- 
chology where he will teach one 

Dr. Wing's duties as Director of 
Student Resources will include co- 
ordinating financial aid matters for 
the entire University, and helping 
determine policies in this area. He 
will collect information designed to 
enable the University to achieve 
maximum use of its resources. Data 
that he will gather will relate to 
scholarships, grants-in-aid, loans and 

Also, Dr. Wing will assist other key 
officials involved in financial aid in 
seeking support from foundation and 
government agencies for student re- 
sources. For some time. Dr. Wing has 
been doing research on factors in- 
volved in student success in college. 
This work embraces problems of at- 
trition, or dropouts, as relate to 
students' social and economic back- 
grounds, as well as performances in 
secondary schools. He will continue 
this research at Duke. 

Last summer. Dr. Wing was direc- 
tor of the Institute on College 
Admissions sponsored by Tulane, the 
College Entrance Examination and 
Southern Regional Education Boards. 
President of the Southern Association 
of Collegiate Registrars and Admis- 
sions Officers in 1959-60, he has 
served on the selection committees of 
both the National Merit and General 
| Motors Scholarships programs. A 

trustee of the CEEB from 1961-64, 
Dr. Wing also has held a number of 
other important positions in national 
organizations concerned with student 
admissions and aid. 

Dr. Wing received his B.A. degree 
from the University of Grand Rapids, 
his MA. from Denver University and 
the Ph.D. degree from Tulane. As a 
Phillips-intern, he was Assistant Dean 
at Harvard College in 1962-63. 

Aide for Knight 

A Montana State University En- 
glish professor will serve as an Ellis L. 
Phillips Foundation intern at Duke 
during the 1965-66 academic year. 

Dr. Jacob Vinocur, associate pro- 
fessor of English and acting director 
of humanities at the Missoula school, 
is one of 13 persons throughout the 
nation to be selected by the Founda- 
tion's program committee. All are 
described as "persons of exceptional 
promise for leadership in higher edu- 
cation," they will serve as interns in 
academic administration. 

Dr. Vinocur will work with Presi- 
dent Douglas M. Knight during his 
year at Duke, and will be the third 
Phillips intern to train here. Retired 
Marine Corps Col. Edward W. Du- 
Rant, Jr., is completing an internship 
this year in the Office of Institutional 
Advancement. Hamilton M. Hoyler, 
now assistant to the vice president for 
business and finance here, also is a 
former intern. 

This year's interns were selected 
from 161 nominees and 110 ap- 
plicants. They go to universities and 
colleges throughout the country. This 
is the fourth and final year of the pro- 
gram, which is sponsored by the 
Phillips Foundation of New York and 
the Edward W. Hazen Foundation of 
New Haven, Conn. 

Host institutions have been selected 
as providing the best opportunity for 
individual interns to develop adminis- 
trative skills, to discuss the art of aca- 
demic administration with teachers 
and leaders in the field, and to observe 
and participate in the operation of the 
host institution. 

The Phillips Foundation pays a 
stipend equal to the salary and fringe 


benefits of the interns at the time of 
their appointment, plus essential travel 
and other professional expenses. 

Summer '65 

The University's 1965 Summer 
Session will feature several special

The 11th Conference on Elemen- 
tary Education will be conducted 
June 17-18, and will deal with art. Al 
Hurwitz of Miami, Fla., an authority 
on art, will be the consultant and 
main speaker. He is supervisor of art 
education for Florida's Dade County 

A Modern Mathematics Workshop 
for Elementary Teachers will be con- 
ducted June 17-July 2. Co-sponsored 
by the N. C. Department of Public 
Instruction, the workshop will em- 
phasize some of the content presently 
being stressed in elementary grades

Football captain John Gutekunst 
on the 1965 season: "We have to go 
out and make the other teams realize 
after it's over that they've been in a 
ball game. We must keep up the 
enthusiasm created in spring prac- 
tice." . . . An all-league choice as a 
quarterback at Pennridge (Pa.) High 
as a senior, Gutekunst says this spring 
was the first time he really felt 
confident about running the ball from 
the halfback slot . . . He'll be in the 
area a good part of the summer and 
plans extensive exercises to strengthen 
the shoulder he injured in spring 
practice ... On football in general, 
"It's something I like to do. I get 
enjoyment from it. It's great fun. 
It's a matter of survival when you're 
on the field and you try to do your 

Track coach Al Buehler elated over 
performances of shot putter Rod 
Stewart and hurdler Bob Fogle in 
ACC meet. "Stewart gave a tremen- 

dous performance," said Buehler, 
"exceeding that of Dick Gesswein 
who was ACC champ three straight 
years." Stewart's toss of 56' 9 l A" 
broke the Duke and ACC records 
held by Gesswein . . . Old Blue Devil 
mark was 57' 9V4" while former con- 
ference record was 56' 10" . . . "Stew- 
art's throw of 57' 9Va" was one of 
the best marks on the East coast this 
spring," said Buehler, "and that throw 
probably put him ninth or 10th in 
the NCAA list this spring." . . . Stew- 
art also won the indoor shot title 
during the winter. Fogle won the trial 
of the 120 yard high hurdle competi- 
tion by about five yards over his 
closest rival . . . His time was : 14.6 
when he cleared the final hurdle and 
had taken two strides before his 
nearest pursuer made the last hurdle 
. . . Fogle also won the title in 1964. 

Outfielder Biff Bracy won batting 
honors for Blue Devils with a final 
average of .330 (30 for 91) ... First 
baseman Steve Holloway ended sea- 
son with .262 mark and led the team 
in doubles with seven . . . Bracy and 
first sacker Jerry Barringer smacked 
the only home runs of the season 
. . . Third baseman Jim Barrett was 
credited with the most at bats (101) 
. . . Righthander Dean Helms posted 
top ERA (1.48) while Jim Liccardo 
pitched the most innings (76%) . . . 
Jay Hopkins finished with 2.67 ERA 
. . . Hill staff had 12 complete games 
out of 25 starts . . . Team ERA was 
3.12 . . . Club reeled off 22 double 
plays, 12 more than in 1964. 

Frosh distance runner Paul Rogers 
looms as promising star of the future 
. . . Rogers was clocked in 9:32.6 
when he won two mile event at recent 
Big Four Freshman Track and Field 
Meet . . . Rogers' time broke record 
established by another Duke fresh- 
man, Jerry Nourse, of 9"34 in 1959 
. . . Frosh basketballer Mike Lewis 
looks like a field star of the future 
from the way he's been tossing the 
shot put and discus . . . Lewis won 
both these events in the Big Four 
Meet . . . Lacrosse team's two victims 
this spring were Hartwick and East 
Carolina College . . . Golfers took 
third place in annual ACC meet with 
759 score. 


The Alumni Gazette 

A compendium of news 

by, of and for 

Duke Alumni everywhere 


Clifford W. Perry '36 has succeed- 
ed the late R. E. Ferguson '38 as 
president of the Duke University 
General Alumni Association. 

Announcement of the former first 
vice president's succession was made 
following a special conference by 
members of the executive committee 
of the National Council. 

Mr. Ferguson, together with Mr. 
Perry and second vice president W. 
Horace Corbett' 38, assumed office 
on June 5 following his election at the 
annual dinner meeting of the Associa- 

On June 21 Mr. Ferguson died of a 
wound, apparently self-inflicted, on 
his farm near Clinton, S. C, where he 
had been a partner and general man- 
ager of the Industrial Supply Com- 

His successor, Mr. Perry, has been 
an outstanding leader in the alumni 
organization of the University. He 
served last year as second vice presi- 
dent of the General Alumni Associa- 
tion. Prior to that he had been 
chairman of the National Council. 
This experience simply qualifies him 
to assume the important position he 
now holds as president of the entire 
alumni body. 

A resident of Winston-Salem, N. C, 
Mr. Perry is now senior vice president 
and treasurer of the Hanes Corpora- 

Mr. Corbett, second vice president, 
stepped down this past year as Na- 
tional Council chairman. He has also 
served the University as president of 
the local Duke Alumni Association in 
his hometown of Wilmington, N. C. 

A businessman, Mr. Corbett is 
president of the Corbett Lumber Com- 
pany and co-partner of the Corbett 
Package Company. 

Upon learning of Mr. Ferguson's 
death, Univerisity President Douglas 
M. Knight said that he was "one of 
the best friends that Duke University 


R. E. Ferguson '38 

ever had, and one of its most out- 
standing alumni. 

"He had held with distinction every 
major office within the alumni organi- 
zation, and had reached a pinnacle 
just this year as president of the 
General Alumni Association. 

"His death is a severe personal blow 
to Duke friends almost beyond num- 
bering," said Dr. Knight. 

Mr. Ferguson is survived by his 
mother, Mrs. Florence Jones Fergu- 
son, his wife, the former Beatrice 
Abernathy '39, and two sons. 


The Southeastern North Carolina 
Duke Alumni Association held its 
second dinner meeting of the year on 
April 13. The speaker was to be 
Dr. Knight but illness prevented his 
attending the meeting. Dr. Robert F. 
Durden, Professor of History, filled 
in admirably. Others attending from 
Duke were Roger L. Marshall, Direc- 
tor of Alumni Affairs; Clay Lewis, 
Assistant Secretary for Class and 
Club Programs; and Harry Jackson, 
Assistant Alumni Editor. Lawrence 
S. Everett, Jr. '42, president of the 
Association, was in charge of ar- 

Clifford W. Perry '36 

rangements. Eighty-five alumni and 
friends in the area attended. New 
officers elected during a business meet- 
ing were: president, Emma Pritchett 
Jewel (Mrs. Edwin S.) '56; vice presi- 
dent, Earl R. Sikes '15; secretary, 
Dorothy O. Forbes '35; treasurer, 
Richard E. House '58; and alumnae 
council representative, Barbara Sachs 
Schwartz (Mrs. Joe M.) '47. Other 
retiring officers include Ann Jordan 
Craven (Mrs. Walter G.) '57 and Ben 
C. Ivey '52. 


An election of officers and a pre- 
view showing of a color slide program 
of the University prepared by the 
Department of Alumni Affairs high- 
lighted the spring meeting of the 
Northern California Duke Alumni As- 
sociation. J. Rod Hottel '43 was in 
charge of arrangements and is the 
retiring president. New officers elected 
include: president, Theodore M. 
Robinson '40; vice president, Richard 
A. Buschman '52; and secretary- 
treasurer Carolyn Owen Thiessen 
(Mrs. Brian D.) '61. Ruth Davis 
Rimbach (Mrs. P. King) '57 is re-

Born at the age of 128. 

Hanes Corporation was born February 26, 1965. Yet, it is 128 years old. 

You see, Hanes Corporation is the result of the merger of P. H. Hanes Knitting 

Company, 63 years old, and Hanes Hosiery Mills Company, 65 years old. 

Combined age? 128 years. 

This combination of youth and age is actually quite 

descriptive of Hanes Corporation. 

Young in ideas. 

Young in energy and enthusiasm. 

Young in excitement. 

But old in experience, maturity, and stability. 
So you can look to Hanes Corporation and its more than 9,000 employees to 
continue to offer the best in fine products for the whole family. 

Ladies' seamless stockings. 

Underwear for men and boys. 

Infants' and children's wear. Sleepwear. 

Sportswear and athletic uniforms. 

Socks for men and children. 

And the most important product of all: 









Serving Industry

Southeast for Over Seventy-nine Years 



September 1965 


SE p 27 1965 

In this issue: The Seventh Annual Alumni Lecture Series, "Communism in India 
and China: A Study in Contrast" Also: The Dean and More Than Muscle 


This September, 1965, issue of the Duke Univer- 
sity Alumni Register is noteworthy in at least 
two respects, and its editor hopes in some others 
as well. But there are two considerations which should 
by no means pass unnoticed. 

First, with this issue the Register begins its 51st 
year of publication. As noted last April, this makes 
it one of the most venerable alumni publications in 
the United States and, indeed, in the entire world. 
Here again is evidence of the sometimes bewildering 
and contradictory circumstance of Duke being both 
young and old, possessing the virtues and presumably 
the faults of both youth and maturity. 

A 50-year-old magazine spawned by a 40-year-old 
university! But it must be remembered that the Regis- 
ter was the child of the institution by a former marriage, 
to torture a metaphor. 

During the half-century of its existence the Register 
has had, as nearly as they can be counted, seven edi- 
tors. And the second fact of this particular issue is 
that it is the first produced by editor number eight. 

Modest fellow that he is (and this is not just a 
casually polite observation) Harry R. Jackson '57 
neglected to report his ascension in any of the succeed- 
ing pages. This was an oversight that had to be 
remedied in this last piece of copy to cross his desk. 

Harry is no newcomer to the Register. Since 1960, 
when the sixth incumbent still bore the title of editor, 
he has been doing a major share of the work, pro- 
ducing some of the more praiseworthy items. 

His association with the magazine, however, began 
much earlier. It was, in fact, in October of 1938 that 
his name first and prophetically appeared in its pages. 
At that time, and for many years thereafter, the Register 
fostered an institution known as the "Baby Page" where 
photographs of infant sons and daughters of alumni 
received prominent display. This is where Harry 
Jackson made his Register debut. 

It has been inferred that our new editor is a second 
generation Duke alumnus. He is the son of the Rev. 
William H. R. and Vertie Moore Jackson '30 of Raleigh, 
N. C. He also married a Duke girl, Judy Gaddy '63. 

It was also noted that Harry is modest — and he is. 
He doesn't chatter. But he grins a lot. This by no 
means makes him look like one of the Seven Dwarfs. 
The grin is too intelligent for that, and it conveys the 
faintest sort of sardonic amusement, something tradi- 
tionally appropriate to a journalistic calling. 

Otherwise in appearance he is a trifle ascetic, and 
will probably become more so as the years wear on. 
This, too, is a significant editorial attribute. It is an 
amusing fact that once in awhile someone will accuse 
him of looking like a poet, and then the grin turns into 
a laugh, most emphatically audible. He will then make 
it a point to get the haircut he had neglected, under 
the pressure of deadlines, for a week too long. 

A reader should know his editor, so a few more 
observations may be permitted. 

Harry has a talent most valuable at the juncture 
between an academic community and the world of 
alumni at large, where the Register presumably stands. 
He writes in a manner that will generally win the 
grumbling approval of the scholarly sort and at the 
same time is appealing to the less exacting reader. His 
research, when required, is carefully performed, and 
he has gained the respect of some of the very proper 
people on campus by spending hours in the library, 
usually absorbed in some of the mustier tomes relating 
to Duke's earlier history. 

In rare and idle moments a good editor will ponder 
the purpose of his publication. Ours is no excep- 
tion. He has a rather positive attitude toward what 
the magazine should be and do. His ideas spring from 
a healthy imagination, nourished by adequate experi- 
ence and polished by being rubbed against a representa- 
tive group of readers. 

Thus far Harry has permitted himself to make three 
public vows: One, the magazine will be produced on 
time, early in the month of its date. Two, it will 
accurately and honestly reflect Duke University. And 
three, it will be a useful and stimulating periodical for 
a broad section of University alumni and friends. 

These are brave assertions, but there is a shared 
and strong conviction that the Register provides a major 
and exceedingly important link among members of the 
broader University family and that it is worthy of the 
best sort of editorial effort. 

Harry will be Alumni Editor as well as Register 
editor and as such will have a broad range of duties, 
maintaining several open channels of communication 
between Duke and Duke alumni. Howard Snethen, 
editor number seven, is leaving the University after 
three years to devote his own considerable talents to 
an as yet unannounced pursuit.

A contemporary statement of ration- 
ale for the undergraduate cur- 
riculum has long been needed. Several 
past attempts to prepare such a state- 
ment were unsatisfactory. Now, how- 
ever, the Committee on Undergraduate 
Instruction has issued a statement de- 
fining the objectives of a liberal edu- 
cation at Duke. 

Professor of Economics Fred C. 
Joerg, last year's committee chairman, 
said that the statement, as it appears in 
its final form, was a "matter of some 
argument over half the year within 
the committee." 

The statement, which can serve as 
a broad guide in decisions affecting the 
undergraduate curriculum, is pre- 
sented here in its entirety: 

"Woodrow Wilson described the ob- 
jectives of a liberal education as 'the 
wholly awakened man.' Though the 
four years in college may not seem 
long enough to achieve this noble 
ideal, at the least they prepare one for 
the life-long awakening. A bachelor's 
degree is not an end, it is a beginning. 
Graduation, from the Latin word 
gradum, step, marks one more stride 
along the way. 

"The idea of a liberal education, like 
all great ideas, eludes precise defini- 
tion, but in every age men have tried 
to express this abstraction by describ- 
ing its results. They have always 
fallen short, because any definition is 

a system of limitations. For example, 
a nineteenth-century master at Eton 
told his students: 

You go to a great school not so 
much for knowledge as for arts 
and habits; for the habit of at- 
tention, for the art of expres- 
sion, for the art of assuming at 
a moment's notice a new intel- 
lectual position, for the art of 
entering quickly into another 
person's thoughts, for the habit 
of submitting to censure and 
refutation, for the art of indi- 
cating assent or dissent in grad- 
uate terms, for the habit of 
regarding minute points of ac- 
curacy, for the art of working 
out what is possible in a given 
time, for taste, for discrimina- 
tion, for mental courage and 
mental soberness. 
"This is helpful, but the questing 
student will surely wish for something 
further, something even more explicit 
about the abilities, attitudes, and cus- 
toms essential to a liberal education. 
"At Duke University, as at every 
school dedicated to the liberal tradi- 
tion, it is the faculty that must, in the 
final analysis, determine the specific 
content of the four-year curriculum 
offered for those who pursue a liberal 
education. And in constructing that 
curriculum, the faculty have taken in- 
to account these aims: 

"First, an educated man will ac- 
quire at least some experience in the 
three divisions of human knowledge 
and inquiry: the world of nature — the 
physical and life sciences; the world 
of man in relation to man — the social 
sciences; the world of spirit and imagi- 
nation — the humanities. 

"The objective is a man capable of 
thinking in the markedly different 
ways represented by these three divi- 
sions; for each of them he will famil- 
iarize himself with the appropriate 
method and idiom as well as the par- 
ticular purpose and scope. 

"Second, an educated man will con- 
centrate in one discipline to enjoy the 
returns to be derived from intensive 
and specialized work. 

"Third, an educated man will learn 
to read his native language with ease 
and accuracy; what is more, he should 
develop a life-long desire to read 
avidly and with discernment. 

"Fourth, an educated man will mas- 
ter his native language with sufficient 
skill to write it with vigor and pre- 

"Fifth, an educated man will read, 
write, and speak competently at least 
one foreign language. Apart from any 
utilitarian purpose it may serve, this 
objective leads to an understanding of 
a foreign culture and at the same time 
affords a fresh awareness of one's own 
tongue and society. 

Rolling 'em in the President's office. 

"And finally, a liberally educated 
man will acquire historical, artistic, 
philosophical and spiritual perspective. 
An exposure to the deeds and dreams 
of great minds in the unending strug- 
gle to reconcile power and principle. 
an awareness of the ways in which 
men have defined beauty, a knowledge 
of the best in ancient thought, and an 
appreciation of the values men have 
found in the Judaeo-Christian heritage 
must instill a contempt for the mere- 
tricious and the second-rate. 

"In short, a liberal education should 
help a man to know, to understand, 
to decide, and to express: to know the 
facts or how to find them, to under- 
stand those facts with insight and per- 
spective, to decide only after under- 
standing and conscious evaluation, and 
to express those decisions with ease 
and grace. These are not the sum of 
a liberal education, but they go far to 
assist the wholly awakened man in his 
unceasing quest to live with dignity 
and sensitivity in our complex world 
and to participate in the values and 
common purposes that infuse our 

The statement will appear in the 
March, 1966, Bulletin of Undergradu- 
ate Instruction. 


Other action emanating from the 
Committee on Undergraduate Instruc- 

tion, and approved by the Undergrad- 
uate Faculty Council, was the estab- 
lishment of a program of freshman 
tutorials which will be conducted 
initially on a trial basis. 

The tutorials, which will carry one 
semester hour credit, will be given to 
accompany introductory courses of- 
fered to freshmen. Only students en- 
rolled in the accompanying course will 
be eligible for the tutorial. Individual 
departments, of course, will determine 
which students will be asked to enroll 
in the tutorial program. 

Professor of Economics Fred C. 
Joerg, last year's committee chairman, 
said that the program is intended to 
"offer more of a challenge to excep- 
tional students and provide more stu- 
dent-faculty contact. We hope to 
stimulate intellectual activity early in 
the educational process." 

Although assigning one hour of 
credit to the tutorial will not follow 
the usual practice of equating a credit 
hour to an hour per week in class. 
Professor Joerg felt that the allowance 
was appropriate when the amount of 
work involved in the tutorial was con- 

The program will also require more 
work on the part of individual faculty 
members — as any who have ever 
taught a special section or honors of- 
fering will quickly testify. Although 
it was suggested that regular sections 
of introductory courses be enlarged 
in order to provide necessary faculty 

time for the tutorials, it was felt that 
this should be done only if instruction 
was not rendered less effective. 

Rolling 'em 

Seven tons of wash. 

It would seem, of course, that the 
job of University President is demand- 
ing enough without having to perform 
the job's duties before the unyielding, 
critical eye of the camera. But Presi- 
dent Douglas M. Knight recently sub- 
mitted himself to thirteen hours before 
the harsh judgment of this device — 
first in his office (see p. 3) and then 
in his English 168 course. 

A small part of this job of acting 
by the President appears in a twenty- 
eight minute, sound and color film 
being prepared to help launch the 
University's three-year $102,800,000 
capital gifts campaign. Along with 
the President, the film contains scenes 
shot in classrooms and laboratories, at 
athletic events and committee meet- 
ings. A major part of the film is con- 
cerned with the University's future, so 
building models and architect's 
sketches are used to dramatize the 
need for new facilities. 

"We have not compromised with 
reality or fact to achieve beauty," said 
one University official connected with 
the film's production. A trustee re- 
viewing committee, however, is re- 
ported to have felt that reality would 
best be served if certain sequences 
were cut from the film and others 
added. So some final editing must be 
done before the film is released to 
alumni and friends interested in sup- 
porting the University. 

The Code 

On April 11, 1963, the Undergrad- 
uate Faculty Council adopted an aca- 
demic honor code which was later 
amended on December 10, 1963. That 
particular code allowed undergradu- 
ates in Trinity College, The Woman's 
College, and the College of Engineer- 
ing to adopt an honor system which 
would have dispensed with proctors 
during examinations. Students in each 
course-section were required to vote on 

whether to adopt the system and abide 
by its rules. One negative vote cDuld 
deny the system to all students in a 
course-section. Very few sections voted 
unanimously in favor of the code. 
Many students complained that they 
did not want to be policemen, i.e., have 
to report offenders. 

At its May 13, 1965, meeting, the 
Undergraduate Faculty Council voted 
that the present academic honor code 
be cancelled and that the faculty re- 
turn to the proctoring system effective 
September 1. 1965. The motion to 
cancel the code, however, was amend- 
ed to read: "The Undergraduate Fac- 
ultv Council hopes some consideration 
will be given by students to working 
out a more viable honor system." 

Seven-ton Wash 

It seems doubtful that any alumna 
ever took a home economics course 
where she learned to cope with seven 
tons of laundry on washday. But for 
eight hours a day, five and a half days 
a week, the problem of such a gi- 
gantic wash confronts E. T. Parrish. 
manager of the new Hospital Laundry. 

Before construction began on the 
new facility in February, 1964, Mr. 
Parrish "travelled thousands of miles, 
alone and with others, to get the best 
ideas to put into this operation." 

The resulting operation consists of a 
new building (which some people on 
campus have said is more attractive 
than any of the red brick buildings be- 
hind the Chapel) which houses three 
washing machines capable of washing 
600 pounds of soiled linen per hour, 
a smaller washing machine for such 
items as rags and mops, drying and 
ironing machines, and sewing and 
patching machines. 

"The average public," said Mr. Par- 
rish. "still thinks of a laundry as just 
soap and water." In the Hospital 
Laundry, however, articles are treated 
with special chemicals, a germicide, 
starch, and bleaching agents as well as 
with soap and water. "It is interesting 
to note," says InterCom, a Medical 
Center publication, "that the germicide 
is tested for effectiveness in a lab at 
the Hospital before it is used by the 

A sentimental journey to look for Brantley York's chair. 

Laundry. The germicide presently in 
use is so effective that if any bacteria 
falls on a laundered article from the 
time it is washed until actually used, 
the bacteria will either be killed or it 
will become dormant." 

The InterCom emphasizes the im- 
portance of the facility by saying that 
"there is not one employee, student, 
patient or visitor who is not served in 
some way by the Laundry." 

Sentimental Journey 

She was looking for a chair, she ex- 

plained, a platform rocker that her 
grandmother had given to the Univer- 
sity in 1928. She had come all the 
way from Ada, Oklahoma, with her 
husband, her daughter, two grandsons, 
and a dog named "Itty Bitty." 

The woman was Mrs. Elizabeth 
York Kale, granddaughter of The 
Reverend Brantley York, who. in 
1838, became schoolmaster at Brown's 
Schoolhouse in Randolph County. 
North Carolina. A year later the 
schoolhouse, under his leadership, be- 
came Union Institute, which became, 
in turn. Normal College, then Trinitv 
College, and finally Duke University. 

Her grandfather, she said, "devoted 
most of his life to establishing schools 
all over North Carolina." He was 
totally blind, she said, for about thirty 
years. Still, he continued to found 
schools until his death at eighty-six 
years of age. He is buried a short dis- 
tance from Taylorsville, North Caro- 

The chair, explained Mrs. Kale, was 
one her grandfather had used. Dean 
Mary Grace Wilson made several 
frantic telephone calls around campus 
trying to locate the chair. Finally, it 
was decided that a platform rocker in 
East Duke Building might be the 
proper one. Mrs. Kale thought it was, 
even though it had been re-upholstered. 

Later, over lunch in the Oak Room, 
Mrs. Kale said that her father was the 
late David V. York, youngest son of 
Brantley York. The elder York, said 
Mrs. Kale, "had about twelve children. 
My own father had six." The oldest 
of the six is now eighty. And all six 
children are still alive. 

She introduced her husband and 
their daughter Mrs. Marian Dunlap, 
and the two grandchildren Richard 
and "Curly" Dunlap. ("Curly" is 
really Frank, but he is known by the 
former. Mrs. Dunlap explained that 
his hair had not been cut until he was 
eighteen months old.) 

"We've never been East," said Mrs 
Kale, "and that, plus the fact that my 
grandfather had been associated with 
the beginnings of this University, was 
enough to make us want to come." 
When they left after lunch, Mrs. Kale 
said, "It's really been thrilling." And 
the oldest grandson, Richard, who is 
very good with the shot-put, said that 
he hoped to return someday as a 

Medical Expansion 

Expenditures for expansion and ren- 
ovation at the Medica' Center during 
the past ten years exceed $14,000,000, 
reports Louis Swanson, assistant ad- 
ministrative director of the Center. 

The most recently completed proj- 
ects include a Private Diagnostic 
Clinic courtyard addition, a Hospital 
Laundry, and a veterinary facility lo- 


cated off Guess Road near the Duke 
Homestead. The most ambitious proj- 
ect presently underway is the Main 
Entrance Building which is scheduled 
for completion in the fall of 1966. 

Scheduled for construction in the 
near future is a $1,800,000 addition 
to the existing Clinical Research Build- 
ing and a new, $5,400,000 Medical 
Sciences Building. The latter will be 
the cornerstone of a new Medical 
Center complex as projected in the 
Center's long-range planning. 

In addition to these major projects, 
other construction is always being 
planned or in progress in order to 
modernize existing facilities. "The 
price of progress," says Mr. Swanson, 
"is noise, interference with day-to-day 
work, inconvenience in parking and 
access to present buildings," and all 
the other frustrations involved in such 


Dr. Ernest W. Nelson, who retired 
this year as professor of history, was 
honored on May 9 at a concert cele- 
brating the twentieth anniversary of 
the founding of the University's 
Chamber Arts Society. Under Pro- 
fessor Nelson's guidance the Society 
has succeeded in bringing the best of 
chamber music programs to the Uni- 
versity community. This guidance has 
required a great amount of Professor 
Nelson's time — as well as some of his 
money. He always signed every mem- 
bership card in the Society. And at 
the end of the Society's first year of 
existence he signed a personal check to 
cover a large deficit. 

In recognition of this devotion, as 
well as for the professor's "unerring 
judgment in the choice of musicians 
and music," the Society established an 
Ernest William Nelson Fund to be 
used to further the aims of the Society 
as Mr. Nelson directs. Contributions 
to the fund can still be made through 
Dr. Leland R. Phelps in the depart- 
ment of German. 

Shortly after the May 9 concert by 
Paul Doktor, violist, and Yaltah Men- 
uhin, pianist, the Society announced 
its 1965-66 program. Scheduled to 

appear on campus are: the Quartetto 
di Roma, October 30; the Kroll Quar- 
tet, November 20; the Fine Arts Quar- 
tet, March 12; and the Juilliard Quar- 
tet, April 16. 

Others appearing will be: Jean- 
Pierre Rampal, flute, and Robert 
Veyron-Lacroix, keyboard, December 
1 1 ; and the Marlboro Trio, February 5. 

Admission is by membership in the 
Society. These memberships can be 
obtained for an annual fee of $12.50. 
Membership, however, is restricted to 
350 persons because of the size of the 
auditorium in East Duke Building 
where the series is performed. All 
concerts begin at 8:15 p.m. 

Arts Aid 

The Mary Duke Biddle Foundation 
seems to increase its support of the 
arts each year. Two recent announce- 
ments indicate that one grant was 
awarded for creative writing while an- 
other grant went for the establishment 
of two Mary Duke Biddle Scholar- 
ships in Music Composition. 

Kathryn Ann Vale '65, of Goldston, 
North Carolina, was awarded a grant 
of $3,600 to improve her creative 
writing talent. She will work under 
the supervision of Professor of English 
William Blackburn. 

Miss Vale, who served last year as 
editor of The Archive, has already 
had a short story, "A Grain, Perhaps 
of Wheat," published in the March, 
1964, issue of The North American 
Review. Her award is the first to be 
awarded by the Foundation for crea- 
tive writing. 

The Mary Duke Biddle Scholarships 
in Music, each valued at $2,500 per 
academic year, will be awarded to 
entering freshmen beginning this Sep- 
tember. Candidates for the competi- 
tive scholarships will be required to 
submit samples of their original music 
compositions when they apply for ad- 
mission to the University. A commit- 
tee composed of the Mary Duke Bid- 
dle Professor of Music and two 
persons in the field of music outside 
the University will select the winners. 
Each scholarship may be renewed for 
a maximum of four years of under- 
graduate study in music. 

Dr. Harold W. Lewis, dean of arts 
and sciences, expressed the Universi- 
ty's appreciation for the support it has 
received over the years from the Foun- 
dation. Mrs. Biddle was the daughter 
of Benjamin N. Duke. 

The University is also receiving sup- 
port for the arts from the personal 
benefactions of Dr. and Mrs. James 
H. Semans. Mrs. Semans is the 
daughter of Mrs. Biddle. Her hus- 
band is professor of urology at the 
Medical Center. The couple recently 
established a prize for an "original 
composition of chamber music or a 
distinguished paper in music history 
or analysis" written by a Duke under- 
graduate. They also have just recently 
added three examples of early Greek 
art to the University's Virginia and 
Thomas Breckenridge Semans Me- 
morial Collection. 

The award in music, which consists 
of $100, will be called the Henry 
Schuman Music Prize to honor the 
memory of a life-long family friend. 
Mr. Schuman was a rare book dealer 
in New York. 

The art objects received by the Uni- 
versity consist of a 3,400-year-old 
Mycenaean stirrup-jar, a pyxis dating 
from the eighth century B.C., and a 
small olpe from the same period. The 
Semans Collection is named in honor 
of Dr. Semans' parents. 

Better Teachers 

Graduate students in the humanities 
— specifically in the departments of 
English, history, and religion — will be- 
gin benefiting this fall from $337,640 
the Danforth Foundation granted the 
University to help improve the prepa- 
ration of college and university teach- 
ers. Twelve two-year fellowships will 
fbe awarded to students from these 
three departments during each of the 
next four years. 
A major feature of the program will 
be the establishment of a master-ap- 
prentice relationship between fellow- 
ship recipients and selected professors. 
"A number of distinguished teachers 
will be asked to serve as mentors," 
said Dr. Richard L. Predmore, dean of 
the Graduate School of Arts and 

Sciences. The students will be called 
Apprentice Teaching Fellows. 

The fellowships amount to $2,800 
each in addition to tuition. Dean 
Predmore said, of course, that he was 
"very pleased to have this handsome 
new support." The grant is calculated, 
he feels, "to help solve one of society's 
most pressing problems: how to pre- 
pare not only enough teachers but 
good enough teachers to meet our 

Professors Now 

Eight faculty members have been 
promoted to the rank of full professor 
while two other individuals have re- 
ceived appointments to the faculty at 
that level. Another man. Dr. Richard 
A. Preston, has been appointed Wil- 
liam K. Boyd Professor of History. 

Faculty members promoted to pro- 
fessor are: Dr. Robert F. Durden, his- 
tory: Dr. Richard H. Leach, political 
science; Dr. John L. Artley, electrical 
engineering; Dr. Terry W. Johnson, 
Jr., botany (departmental chairman); 
Dr. Sidney D. Markman, art; Dr. Mc- 
Murry S. Richey, Divinity School; and 
Dr. Joseph R. Shoenfield and Dr. Seth 
L. Warner, mathematics. 

Those receiving appointments to the 
faculty as professors are: L. Sigfred 
Linderoth, Jr., mechanical engineer- 
ing; and Dr. Simon Rottenberg. eco- 
nomics. Professor Linderoth is a ma- 
chine design expert who has had ex- 
perience in teaching as well as indus- 
try. Dr. Rottenberg, a specialist on 
the economies of Latin America, was 
formerly at the University of Cuyo 
in Argentina. 

Dr. Preston, the first permanent ap- 
pointee to the endowed Boyd Profes- 
sorship, has distinguished himself in 
studies of the British Commonwealth. 
He was most recently a member of 
the faculty of the Royal Military Col- 
lege in Kingston, Ontario. 

State Action 

"The states cannot let the nation 
down. If the states fail to act . . . they 
will forfeit the best chance to shape 

the course of this nation, and all edu- 
cational opportunities will be the less 
because of the forfeiture." The speak- 
er was Terry Sanford, former governor 
of North Carolina, addressing repre- 
sentatives of the state legislatures at 
the Eighteenth Annual Meeting of the 
National Legislative Conference in 
Portland, Oregon. Mr. Sanford urged 
the states to join together in a "Com- 
pact for Education" which would 
serve as a forum for sharing experi- 
ences, improving standards, and de- 
bating goals on a national level. 

"Education," he said, "is too large 
and too important to be left to the 
haphazard chance of unconnected 
state and local efforts . . . and too com- 
plex to be left to a single guiding 
national hand." 

In urging this national partnership 
for the improvement of education, 
Mr. Sanford said, "The future of the 
states will rest in many ways on the 
pivotal question of whether they will 
be able ... to meet the demands of 
the American people for educational 
excellence and the commands of the 
age for educational innovation."

Foundation and Carnegie Corporation. 

Named Director 

Frank L. Ashmore, vice president 
for institutional advancement, recently 
announced that Thomas E. Broce has 
been named director of development. 
In this position Mr. Broce will direct 
activities in the offices of the Universi-

and governmental liaison, business and 
industrial liaison, and field services. 
He also will serve as Mr. Ashmore's 
chief deputy in the University's capital 
gifts campaign. 

"The demands of the $102,800,000

The Triumph 


Communism in China 

An Historical Analysis 

Presented by Donald G. Gillin 

Associate Professor of History 

at the Seventh Annual Alumni Lecture Series 

The reasons why the Chinese Communists came to 
power on the Chinese mainland are many and 
complex. As early as the latter half of the eigh- 
teenth century the population of China began outstrip- 
ping food supply. Whereas in 1662 there were about 
one hundred million people living in China, by 1851 
China's population numbered perhaps 432,000,000. 
During the same period the amount of cultivated land 
in China increased by only 34 per cent. Consequently, 
tens and perhaps eventually hundreds of millions of 
Chinese found their living standards sinking, with the 
result that they became more and more hostile to not 
only the ruling Manchu dynasty but also the existing 
social and economic system. By 1850 a large part of 
China's population consisted of virtually homeless vaga- 
bonds — what might be called a "floating" or "wander- 
ing" class of persons who. because they were utterly im- 
poverished, despondent, and lacking in identity, had no 
stake in the existing social and economic system and 
therefore were inclined to think that any change in that 
system would be for the better. 

This situation provoked the so-called Taiping Re- 
bellion, a massive and terrifying peasant uprising which 
began in the 1850's and for nearly ten years devastated 
much of China, resulting in the death of more than 
twenty million people. Unlike peasant rebels in the 
past, the Taipings wanted to destroy everything com- 

monly regarded as being uniquely Chinese: the private 
ownership of land which had resulted in a vast increase 
in the number of exploited and destitute tenant farmers, 
the extended family system which, because of rapid 
population growth, was less and less able to provide 
adequate economic support for its members, the virtual 
enslavement of women by men, the esoteric and de- 
manding curriculum of the traditional civil service ex- 
aminations which militated against rapid social mobility, 
and, above all, Confucianism with its emphasis on sub- 
mission to authority and acceptance of the status quo. 
The Taipings were so attracted by the egalitarianism in- 
herent in much of Christianity that they professed to 
be Christians; wherever they went they championed the 
poor against the rich, who were deprived of their 
property and in many instances massacred. This is 
why the Chinese Communists regard the Taiping Re- 
bellion as the forerunner of their own movement; this 
also illustrates the extent to which the Communist 
triumph is an outgrowth of the massive poverty created 
in China by overpopulation. 

Nevertheless, owing to their superior leadership and 
better organization, together with considerable assis- 
tance from the foreign powers, the forces defending the 
established order in China succeeded in defeating the 
Taipings. Following the suppression of the Taipings, 
China enjoyed a decade of comparative stability, in part 

because the slaughter of tens of millions of people during 
the Rebellion relieved momentarily the awful pressure of 
population growth. By the end of the nineteenth cen- 
tury, however, China's population was larger than ever, 
and the resulting poverty was being made worse by a 
steady influx of textiles and other foreign-made goods 
which destroyed much of the market for the cruder and 
more expensive products of China's own handicraft 
industries. Although for many peasants the income 
they earned from the sale of their handicrafts meant the 
difference between mere poverty and utter destitution, 
the Chinese government was unable to come to their 
rescue because of treaties imposed on China as the 
result of military defeats suffered at the hands of the 
Western powers and Japan. These treaties made it 
unlawful for China to levy high tariffs or otherwise 
exclude foreign goods. The resentment aroused in 
China by such prohibitions was exacerbated by addi- 
tional clauses in these so-called "unequal treaties" which 
granted to foreigners living in China immunity to 
Chinese law, as well as other privileges that more so- 
phisticated Chinese regarded as unjust and humiliating 
to China. Although the Boxer Uprising of 1900 drew 
its supporters largely from the rural poor and had revo- 
lutionary overtones, its chief aim was to drive out the 
foreigners, who in retaliation invaded China and oc- 
cupied its capital city of Peking. This humiliation con- 
vinced much of the Chinese intelligentsia that without 
a modern government, economy, and army China would 
be conquered and divided among the foreign powers. 
The civil service examinations, which for almost two 
millenia had been the mainstay of the Confucian order, 
were abolished; and in 1911 there occurred a revolution 
that toppled the emperor from power and resulted in 
the establishment of a republic in China. 

The Revolution of 1911 was largely the work of 
army officers who seized power in different parts of 
China and for more than two decades battled with each 
other almost incessantly. The disunity and continual 
warfare provoked by the division of China into com- 
peting warlord states weakened still further China's 
defenses against foreign aggression, and caused Chinese 
intellectuals to search frantically for some means of 
modernizing, regenerating, and saving their society be- 
fore it was destroyed utterly. Many embraced the 
nationalism preached by Sun Yat-sen and his Kuomin- 
tang or "Nationalist party"; a small number turned to 
Marxism-Leninism and in 1920 organized the Chinese 
Communist party. The intellectuals attracted to com- 
munism were much impressed by the Bolshevik revolu- 
tion in Russia. It would seem that they had less interest 
in the doctrinal aspects of Marxism-Leninism than in 
its usefulness as an organizational technique — in other 
words, as an instrument with which a determined mi- 


nority could initiate a successful revolution. They also 
wanted immediate action and rejected as too slow for 
China the process of gradual change recommended to 
them by persons like the American educator John 
Dewey, who visited China in 1919 and converted to 
pragmatism the man who, only a year later, became the 
first secretary-general of the Chinese Communist party. 
Moreover, since communism professed to be more ad- 
vanced than other forms of human organization, its 
triumph in China was expected to free Chinese intel- 
lectuals from the feeling that their country was inferior 
to Japan and the capitalist nations of the West. These 
countries were responsible for the "unequal treaties" 
and, according to Lenin, owed much of their prosperity 
to their exploitation of underdeveloped countries like 
China. Not only the Communists but also Nationalist 
leaders such as Chiang Kai-shek accepted Lenin's in- 
terpretation of imperialism. 

In 1923 the Communists and the Nationalists joined 
forces against imperialism and together defeated 
the warlords who opposed their efforts to create a 
unified China capable of resisting foreign aggression; 
however, the radicalism of the Communist party and 
its increasing popularity among the masses frightened 
Chiang Kai-shek, as well as other Kuomintang mili- 
tarists, with the result that, beginning in 1927, they 
ruthlessly suppressed it. Tens of thousands of Com- 
munists and their supporters were slaughtered and the 
party almost ceased to exist. This occurred chiefly 
because the Communists lacked an army. The in- 
tellectuals in charge of the party scorned and distrusted 
soldiers and rejected for membership officers who subse- 
quently played major roles in the creation of the Chinese 
Red Army. The ease with which the Kuomintang 
generals suppressed their mass organizations, however, 
convinced many Communists, including Mao Tse-tung, 
that popular support was not enough and that without 
an army to protect it their movement would not survive 
in China. 

Mao likewise accused the party of failing to capital- 
ize sufficiently on the discontent and revolutionary in- 
clinations of the peasants who comprised the over- 
whelming majority of China's population. By 1930 
China's population numbered about five hundred million 
and was increasing at the rate of 2 per cent a year. In 
other words, every year there were ten million more 
Chinese than there had been the year before. The 
growing poverty that resulted from this population ex- 
plosion was made worse by the extortionate taxes which 
the warlords who governed China levied against the 
peasantry in an effort to secure funds for the purpose of 
modernizing their armies and financing their wars. As 

a peasant living in the northwestern province of Shansi 
put it, "You can't do business in . . . (Shansi). They 
tax a man's excrement." Because they already were 
suffering from chronic malnutrition, millions of peasants 
starved to death when drought ravaged the northwest 
in 1929 and again in 1930. An American traveller has 
described these famine victims as follows: "flesh hang- 
ing in wrinkled folds while every bone clearly visible, 
they dragged themselves from spot to spot staring out 
with unseeing eyes, the testicles of the men dangling 
like withered olive seeds and the breasts of the women 
like collapsed sacks. As for children, their skeletons, 
still soft, became crooked and misshapen while their 
arms were like twigs and their purpling bellies, filled 
with bark and sawdust protruded like tumors. Large 
numbers of people simply lay down and died where 
they lay." 

This famine occurred, moreover, at a time when 
China was beginning to feel the effects of the world 
depression which caused the price of foodstuffs to 
plummet and completed the destruction of China's 
handicraft industries, since, in order to stave off un- 
employment at home, Japan and other industrialized 
countries "dumped" on the China market increasing 
quantities of their surplus manufactures. All but the 
richest peasants had to borrow money to support them- 
selves and their families. Inasmuch as this clamor for 
loans coincided with a growing shortage of specie, in- 
terest rates rose rapidly; this shortage of specie was 
largely the result of Franklin Roosevelt's devaluation of 
the American dollar which, in turn, encouraged wealthy 
Chinese to convert their silver into dollars. By 1936 
interest rates averaged 50 to 60 per cent — frequently 
for loans of only six months' duration. This accounts 
for the spectacular increase in the number of tenant 
farmers — luckless creatures who each year had to 
surrender to their landlords as much as 60 per cent 
of their crop. Furthermore, there seems to have existed 
in China a great deal of "disguised" tenantry in the 
form of millions of nominally independent yet, in reality, 
permanently indebted peasants whose suffering at the 
hands of moneylenders was comparable to the exploita- 
tion endured by most tenant farmers. And no matter 
what their status, in the Chinese countryside the poor 
generally were treated by the rich with the utmost cruel- 
ty — in fact, very much like slaves. Exploited, mis- 
treated, illiterate, and totally lacking any feeling of 
"identity" or self-respect, they came to regard life with 
the utmost pessimism. As one unknown peasant poet 
put it, for them life was nothing but: 

Harvest every year; but yearly — nothing 
Borrow money yearly, yearly still in debt 
Broken huts, small basins, crooked pots 
Half an acre of land; five graves. 

Yet, although men like Mao Tse-tung won for the 
party the backing of millions of peasants, the Com- 
munist movement in China remained centered in the 
cities until its virtual destruction after 1927. Many of 
the Communist leaders came from the landowning gen- 
try or the rich peasantry, and in spite of their profes- 
sions of radicalism they seem to have shared the fear 
of and contempt for the mass of the peasantry com- 
monly felt by the wealthier classes in the countryside. 
As Communists, moreover, they were committed to the 
Marxist dogma that the only genuine source of revolu- 
tionary initiative is the industrial working class, or 
proletariat, and that the peasantry represents a funda- 
mentally counter-revolutionary force which cannot play 
an important part in the socialist revolution. Mao be- 
lieved, however, that because the urban workers were 
too few and the cities too vulnerable, communism would 
fail in China unless it drew its supporters chiefly from 
the peasantry. 

The disasters which overtook Chinese communism 
in the latter part of the 1920's discredited the urban- 
oriented and civilian-minded leadership of the party and 
left Mao free to put his ideas into practice. With the 
assistance of General Chu Teh and other professional 
soldiers who nevertheless sympathized with Mao's ob- 
jectives, he began building the Chinese Red Army. The 
new army was recruited almost exclusively from the 
peasantry and was taught to look upon itself as the de- 
fender of the peasants and the very embodiment of their 
aspirations. Everywhere it went it functioned not only 
as an army but also as an instrument of social revolu- 
tion. Besides redistributing among the peasants the 
land and much of the other wealth it confiscated from 
the landlords, moneylenders, and taxgatherers, it eman- 
cipated women, set up schools where peasants and their 
children learned how to read, and in a variety of ways 
tried to give to the rural masses the feeling of "identity" 
and self-respect which in the past they conspicuously 
had lacked. As one Communist soldier put it, "Our 
Red Army is the people!" 

This role was thrust upon the Red Army by its 
utter dependence on the peasantry. Besides se- 
curing its food from the peasants, the Red Army 
relied on them to defend its own rear areas and wage 
an incessant guerrilla campaign behind Kuomintang 
lines. Moreover, the Communists found that only with 
the wholehearted support of the peasantry could they 
conduct the kind of warfare necessary in order to sur- 
vive the attacks of the Kuomintang's much larger 
armies. Against these armies the Red Army employed 
a policy of rapid concentration, culminating in a surprise 
attack on a numerically weaker enemy unit, and fol- 


lowed by an equally swift withdrawal before the Kuo- 
mintang could bring up the bulk of its forces. Since 
the extent to which the Red Army surprised its enemy 
frequently represented the difference between success 
and failure, it came to lean on the peasants who helped 
it cloak its own movements in secrecy while at the 
same time reporting the precise strength and disposi- 
tion of Kuomintang units. More important, without 
the help of the peasants the Red Army would have 
been unable to accomplish the rapid withdrawals which, 
in many respects, represented the secret of its survival. 
Often the Communist soldiers dispersed into surround- 
ing fields where, after hiding their weapons, they 
donned peasant dress and worked side by side with 
the farmers while Kuomintang troops marched past 
in search of them. "Tactics are important, but we 
could not exist if the people did not support us!" 
remarked one Red Army commander. 

Chiefly because of the backing it received from the 
local peasantry, the Red Army repelled no less than four 
massive attacks by Chiang Kai-shek's numerically su- 
perior and considerably better-equipped forces. By 
1934 a large part of southeastern China was in the 
hands of the Communists, who captured so much am- 
munition and other materiel from their opponents that 
cynics began referring to Chiang's troops as "weapons 
carriers" for the Red Army. Chiang Kai-shek exacted 
a terrible revenge, however, by attacking the Com- 
munists from all directions with forces too enormous 
for the Red Army to withstand. In an effort to prevent 
them from aiding the Communists, moreover, he killed 
or transported most of the peasants living in or around 
the Communist-held areas. As a result, the Red Army 
was badly defeated and had to flee thousands of miles 
across some of the most russed terrain in the world be- 
fore finding comparative safety in China's remote North- 
west. During the course of this so-called "Long March" 
the Red Army lost 75 per cent of its men. Neverthe- 
less, it survived, and by 1937 had recovered most of its 
strength. This happened because the peasants of the 
Northwest were even poorer and more wretched than 
those living in the South, with the result that they wel- 
comed the social and economic reforms carried out by 
the Red Army and lent it their enthusiastic support. 
Thus, Chiang's armies were powerful enough to defeat 
the Communists, but he could not destroy them owing 
to the terrifying poverty of the peasants and the skill 
with which Mao and his followers capitalized on it. 

Now, the Communists began pressing for a united 
front against Japan, which had seized Manchuria and 
was in the process of annexing North China as well. 
An increasingly large number of Chiang Kai-shek's sup- 
porters sympathized with this demand, and in the winter 
of 1937 Chiang was obliged to stop fighting the Com- 


munists and join forces with them against the Japanese. 
This provoked the Japanese into invading North China 
under the pretext of combatting communism but ac- 
tually with the intention of defeating and discrediting 
Chiang Kai-shek, whose growing strength threatened to 
frustrate Japan's ambitions in China. Because Chiang 
and most of the warlords allied with him chose to en- 
gage in a suicidal, albeit heroic, positional struggle with 
the considerably more powerful Japanese Army, the 
bulk of their forces was destroyed and the remnants had 
to seek refuge in the Southwest. The Japanese occupied 
northern and much of central and southeastern China, 
which left Chiang with neither enough man-power nor 
material resources to reconstruct his shattered armies. 
Furthermore, in an effort to avoid being toppled from 
power by the southwestern warlords, whose combined 
strength now probably exceeded his own, Chiang sowed 
dissension among them and in a variety of ways weak- 
ened their armies as much as possible. This is why 
in 1941 the Japanese encountered virtually no opposi- 
tion when they launched a major offensive against the 
Nationalist forces. Although the strength of the Na- 
tionalist armies revived somewhat after the United 
States began pouring men and materiel into south- 
western China, in 1944 the Japanese moved almost at 
will through South China where they destroyed several 
important American air bases. 

The defeats it suffered at the hands of the Japa- 
nese and the apparent hopelessness of its situa- 
tion had a devastating impact on the morale of 
Chiang Kai-shek's regime. Despair gave rise to 
cynicism and opportunism which in turn fostered cor- 
ruption and indifference to the public welfare. The un- 
popularity of Chiang's government was made worse by 
his efforts to reconstruct his armies, despite the loss of 
revenue from Japanese-occupied areas. Besides taxing 
unmercifully that part of the population remaining un- 
der his rule, he also issued an enormous quantity of un- 
backed paper currency. The inflation that resulted 
caused much hardship in the cities where wages and 
other earnings failed to keep pace with soaring prices. 
Furthermore, the policy of Chiang's government with 
respect to agriculture became increasingly reactionary. 
It refused to lower rents and interest rates or to initiate 
other reforms needed to encourage the peasants to step 
up farm output and to enlist their support against 
Japan by relieving their terrifying poverty. In the 
1930's, Chiang's regime acquired most of its revenue 
from the modern sector of China's economy and there- 
fore was much influenced by progressively inclined, often 
American-trained, bankers and industrialists. After 
being driven into the commercially and industrially un- 

derdeveloped Southwest, however, it came to depend al- 
most exclusively on the land tax, with the result that it 
fell completely under the domination of those owning the 
lion's share of the agricultural surplus — in other words, 
rich landlords and moneylenders, who used their control 
of the Kuomintang to maintain the existing order in the 
countryside. In 1942, and again in 1943, corruption 
among Chiang's officials and their indifference to the 
unbelievable rapacity of the rich helped turn a severe 
drought into two of the worst famines in China's mod- 
ern history; perhaps as many as six million people 
starved to death, while countless millions of others were 
reduced to the most awful destitution. Together with 
a system of conscription so cruel that in 1943 over 50 
per cent of the peasants drafted into the army died or 
deserted before reaching the front, this explains why by 
1945 a large part of the farm population in South China 
was in open rebellion against Chiang's regime. 

Owing to its unpopularity among the peasants, as 
well as to the probability that if released in the country- 
side its unwilling conscripts would run off, Chiang Kai- 
shek's regime was unable to employ the partisan tactics 
used against the Japanese by the Communists. Inas- 
much as other kinds of warfare were out of the question 
in Japanese-occupied China, everyone living there who 
wanted to resist Japan turned to the Communists for 
leadership. These included many conservative but 
patriotically inclined persons who now hesitated to 
attack the Communists for fear of seeming to be pro- 
Japanese. Consequently, the Communists secured un- 
harried access to the peasants living behind enemy fines 
and succeeded in carrying out a sweeping program of 
social and economic reform under the guise of fighting 
Japan. While they refrained from openly redistributing 
the land in an effort to reassure their conservative allies, 
they initiated a host of other changes which revolu- 
tionized the existing social structure in the areas they 
controlled by undermining profoundly the power of the 
rich. This revolution took the form of compelling the 
rich to relinquish much of their economic power over 
the masses on the assumption that the poor would op- 
pose mobilization unless exempted from exactions of 
all kinds for fear that their families would starve if they 
deserted their fields and occupations in order to resist 
the Japanese. Many of the rich, moreover, collaborated 
with the Japanese Army which, in return, guaranteed 
their property rights and other privileges. Therefore, 
by attacking Japan the Communists also were assailing 
the existing social and economic order. All of this won 
for the Communist party such an enormous following 
among peasants living behind the Japanese lines that 
soon it controlled much of the countryside in Japanese- 
occupied China. 

During the year and a half immediately following 

their invasion of China, the Japanese were preoccupied 
with defeating Chiang Kai-shek's forces and more or 
less ignored the Communist partisans operating to their 
rear; later, they employed against the Communists the 
same tactics Chiang Kai-shek had used to defeat the 
Red Army in South China in 1934. Now, however, 
there were so many Communist-held areas that al- 
though the Japanese Army inflicted heavy losses on the 
Communists, it was unable to destroy their power in the 
countryside. On the contrary, atrocities perpetrated by 
the Japanese in the course of their efforts to exterminate 
the Communists and their supporters aroused the hatred 
of millions of peasants and caused them to look to the 
Communists for leadership against Japan. After 1943, 
when the Japanese had to withdraw much of their 
strength from China for use against the increasingly 
victorious Americans in the Pacific, the Communists 
went over to the offensive and in many parts of Oc- 
cupied China virtually drove the Japanese out of the 
countryside and into the cities which the Communists 
hesitated to attack because of the Japanese Army's vast- 
ly superior fire power. Moreover, in contrast to the 
monetary chaos and growing poverty in Kuomintang- 
held areas, there was little inflation and living stan- 
dards were appreciably higher than before the Japanese 
invasion in much of the territory controlled by the 
Communists. Lower rents, interest rates, and taxes 
encouraged the peasants to raise more foodstuffs; at the 
same time, by setting up cooperatives, promoting the use 
of modern techniques, and excluding foreign manufac- 
tures the Communists succeeded in reviving the rural 
handicraft industries which, before the coming of the 
West, had been a major source of income for many 
Chinese farmers. Thus, when Japan surrendered in 
August, 1945, there existed behind Japanese lines in 
China a flourishing Communist state having a popula- 
tion of perhaps 150,000,000 people, as well as a mil- 
lion-man army and leaders whose faith in the righteous- 
ness of their own cause was matched by their determina- 
tion to liberate the rest of China from the grip of what 
they chose to regard as "fascism" and "imperialism." 

After Japan's surrender, however, Communist ef- 
forts to seize the cities behind Japanese lines 
were thwarted by the United States which ordered 
Japanese forces in China to continue resisting the Com- 
munists, and then airlifted Chiang Kai-shek's troops into 
the Japanese-held cities. Although the Soviet Union 
turned over to the Chinese Communists all of the 
Japanese weapons captured by its armies during their 
conquest of Manchuria in the summer of 1945, when 
they subsequently withdrew from Manchuria the Rus- 
sians allowed Chiang Kai-shek's troops to garrison its 
cities, perhaps because Moscow wished to avoid pro- 


yoking the United States. Yet, in spite of the aid they 
received from the Americans, who also gave Chiang's 
government a vast quantity of military supplies as well 
as a $US200,000,000 loan, beginning in 1947 the Na- 
tionalists suffered one catastrophic defeat after another 
at the hands of the considerably less well-armed Com- 
munists. This occurred for many reasons. Chiang Kai- 
shek grossly underestimated the military strength and 
popularity of the Communists, whom he insisted on 
treating like a bunch of bandits, with the result that he 
committed a host of strategic and tactical blunders. 
Because Chiang had encouraged quarreling and rivalry 
among Nationalist commanders during the war against 
Japan, now they often were less interested in fighting 
the Communists than in gaining advantages over each 
other. This is why, in many instances, they failed to 
coordinate their operations or come to one another's as- 
sistance. Much of Chiang's army virtually melted away 
since its peasant-conscripts went over to the enemy by 
the hundreds of thousands, taking with them their 
American-made weapons. These deserters, along with 
Chiang's other soldiers, were demoralized completely by 
the unpopularity of their cause in the countryside where 
the peasants supported the Communists with fanatical 
enthusiasm. Whereas Chiang's government continued 
upholding the privileges of landlords and moneylenders, 
the Communists, after Japan's surrender, abandoned 
their moderate stance and began dividing among the 
poor the land and other property belonging to the rich. 
By this time China's population numbered almost six 
hundred million and was increasing at the rate of twelve 
million a year. The poor were more numerous than 

Upon reoccupying Japanese-held cities, moreover, 
Chiang's demoralized and now thoroughly corrupt of- 
ficials indulged in an orgy of looting and extortion which 
alienated from his government businessmen, intel- 
lectuals, and other members of the urban middle class 
who, before 1937, had been among the staunchest sup- 
porters of his regime. Furthermore, owing to the 
enormous quantity of paper currency issued by Chiang's 
government in an effort to meet its soaring expenses, 
people living under its rule suffered from inflation so 
terrifying that the value of their money literally sank to 
nothing. The help given to Chiang's regime by the 
United States also discredited his cause in the eyes of 
many Chinese. It appeared to substantiate Japanese, 
and later Communist, claims that Chiang was being used 
by the Americans as part of an effort to pit Asians 
against Asians and in this way defeat the forces op- 
posing white domination of Asia. By 1947 Americans 
were exceedingly unpopular in China, not only on ac- 
count of Japanese and Communist propaganda, but also 
because American military personnel stationed in China 


generally regarded Chinese with contempt and treated 
them accordingly. In addition, after enduring several 
decades of almost incessant warfare, most Chinese 
yearned desperately for peace; the civil war appalled 
them and many blamed the United States for prolonging 
it by intervening on behalf of Chiang Kai-shek's decrepit 
regime. Indiscriminate bombing of Communist-held 
territory by American-made planes belonging to the 
Nationalist air force intensified popular antagonism to- 
ward Chiang's government and provoked widespread 
anti-American feeling. The United States continued to 
aid Chiang, however, until the winter of 1948 when, 
after destroying the bulk of Chiang's forces in central 
China, the Communists advanced southward with such 
rapidity that by the spring of 1950 they dominated the 
entire Chinese mainland. 

Thus, the reasons why the Communists triumphed 
in China are numerous and complicated. Be- 
cause of the massive and terrifying poverty that 
resulted from the explosive growth of China's popu- 
lation at a time when the Chinese economy was 
stagnating and in some respects disintegrating, revolu- 
tionary change in China was inevitable. If ultimately 
it took the form of communism, the persons responsible 
were neither Chiang Kai-shek nor a handful of Ameri- 
can Foreign Service officers whose sympathies lay with 
Mao Tse-tung and his followers, but rather the leaders 
of the Imperial Japanese Army who, by invading China 
for the avowed purpose of destroying communism, 
created the situation that brought the Chinese Com- 
munists to power. 

The Alumni Lecture Series has been a popular 
feature at commencement for the past seven years. In 
addition to providing alumni with information about 
timely subjects, the lectures also make it possible for 
alumni to meet current members of the faculty. This 
year three faculty members discussed "Communism in 
India and China." Associate Professor of History War- 
ren Lerner, who served as moderator, opened the lec- 
tures by briefly discussing the differences between Asian 
and European communism. After these opening re- 
marks, Associate Professor of History Donald G. Gillin 
and Professor of History Robert I. Crane delivered 
prepared lectures which are reproduced on these pages. 
A 11 three men are amply qualified to speak with authority 
in their fields — Dr. Lerner, specializing in Slavic studies; 
Dr. Gillin, whose field is Chinese history; and Dr. Crane, 
whose major area of study is India. Alumni who heard 
the lectures were enthusiastic in expressing their praise 
of the contents. 

The Failure 


Communism in India 

A Retrospect 

Presented by Robert I. Crane 

Professor of History 

at the Seventh Annual Alumni Lecture Series 

It should, at the outset, be made clear that the de- 
velopment of communism in India, in the years 
since World War I, has followed a substantially 
different course from that which Professor Gillin de- 
scribes for China. This reflects a central fact that re- 
quires some emphasis. The development of commu- 
nism, like that of any other revolutionary ideology and 
movement, is inextricably bound up with the environ- 
ment in which it takes shape. Events in the history of 
China during the past century played a crucial role in 
the success of the Chinese Communists. In so far as 
the historical circumstances and experiences in India 
have been different, the conditions under which com- 
munism had to operate were also different. As we shall 
see, the consequences were markedly different. 

This central fact tends to be overlooked, because 
we seem to labor under the impression that communism 
is a monolithic institution. From that impression, we 
tend to assume that its operations and its consequences 
are likely to be the same in all cases. In fact, however, 
communism has never been as monolithic as has been 
assumed, nor has the Communist movement been able 
to cope with widely different environments in anything 
like a monolithic fashion. The contrast of its success 
in China with its failure in India should make this amply 

On the surface, one might argue that conditions 

which favored the rise of communism in China should 
also have facilitated its rise in India. In his paper, Pro- 
fessor Gillin has emphasized the importance of intoler- 
able living conditions and the negative effects of the de- 
cline of Chinese handicrafts for the creation of a milieu 
in which communism could hope to flourish. His paper 
speaks of landlords and moneylenders who extorted 
all that could be gotten from a luckless peasantry, and 
of a population growth which exacerbated the hard- 
ships faced by the masses in China. 

Those who are familiar with the modern history of 
India would find nothing strange in the story of hard- 
ship in China told by Professor Gillin. If China was 
the most populous nation in the world at the beginning 
of this century, India was the second most populous. 
If China's arable resources were exhausted by popula- 
tion growth, so were those of India. In fact, in the case 
of India we have apparently reliable evidence which in- 
dicates a declining capacity of India's soil to feed India's 
people over the past five decades. 

If there were harsh landlords and moneylenders in 
China, they had their counterpart in India. As early as 
1874 the Deccan peasantry rose against the money- 
lenders in desperation. The world depression of 1931 
struck Indian tenants and landless agricultural laborers 
as severely as it affected Chinese peasants. Foreign 
manufactured cloth and other consumer's goods ac- 


quired a commanding position in the Indian market as 
early as was the case in China, and Indian handicrafts 
withered just as did handicrafts in China. Poverty, 
illiteracy, malnutrition, and endemic diseases were as 
much the heritage of the bulk of the population of 
India as of the Chinese people. 

Moreover, to make the comparison even more apt, 
a Communist party was created in India in 1920, just 
as early as the date of founding of the Communist party 
of China. Whatever "benefit" or inspiration the Chi- 
nese Communists could draw from the world Com- 
munist movement was equally available to the fledgling 
Indian Communist movement. In an oblique sense one 
might even argue that Indian communism was at one 
time "ahead" of Chinese communism — for it was a 
leading Indian Communist, M. N. Roy, who played a 
prominent role in shaping Communist policy in China 
prior to 1928. If one were to count Roy's leadership as 
a part of the story of success of Chinese communism, it 
would have to be "balanced" against his leadership in 
an Indian Communist movement which failed. 

If communism was able to ally itself with rampant 
Chinese nationalism against imperialism, so too was it 
open to Indian communism to ally itself with militant 
Indian nationalism against imperialism. If communism 
captured the revolution in China, and triumphed, why 
did it fail to capture the revolution in India? 

If we assume that the success of communism in 
China was the consequence of effective directives from 
Moscow, we find ourselves in a quandary. The direc- 
tives which flowed from Moscow to China were, to the 
best of my knowledge, no different from those that 
flowed from Moscow to India. In fact, M. N. Roy and 
his colleagues carried directives to China and to India. 
Until 1928, Roy was a major advisor on developments 
in China and in India to the leadership in Moscow. 
Without denying that advice from Moscow was listened 
to in both China and India, we must — I should judge — 
conclude that it was not what came from Moscow but 
rather what was done in China or in India that made 
the crucial difference. And, as I have suggested, what 
was done in China or in India depended very much 
upon the conditions and circumstances existing at the 
time in each country. To find the causes of Chinese 
Communist success in China we have to look into 
Chinese affairs. To find the causes of Indian Com- 
munist failure in India we must likewise look into Indian 

It is interesting to note, at the outset, that the 
founding of a Communist movement in India — during 
World War I — had its confusing aspects. Indian com- 
munism in its earliest stages was fed from two different 
organizational sources. In 1919 and 1920 certain 
Indians visited Russia where they joined the Com- 


munist movement. After brief training in Russia, 
several of these men returned to India to create a 
Communist party. However, at the same time — or very 
shortly thereafter — the British Communist party sent a 
few organizers to India to set up a Communist party. It 
would perhaps not be an exaggeration to say that there 
was a degree of factional and jurisdictional disagree- 
ment amongst these earnest Communist colonizers who 
came from Russia and from England. More important- 
ly, factionalism and the existence of cliques seems to 
have characterized the Indian Communist movement 
during many of the years since 1919. M. N. Roy, of 
course, represented the Russian "wing" of communism 
in India. 

As was the case in China, so also in India the 
bulk of the party leaders were disaffected in- 
tellectuals — men who had been driven by revolu- 
tionary discontent and anti-imperialism into the arms of 
the Communist movement. These intellectuals had to 
solve certain thorny problems if their leadership was 
to become effective. One problem was that of degree 
of emphasis on workers or on peasants. For reasons 
suggested in Dr. Gillin's paper, the orthodox Communist 
view was that the peasantry was at least potentially 
counter-revolutionary in nature. It was to be a long 
time before an Indian Communist leader — like Mao 
Tse-tung — would emerge who was willing to turn to the 
peasants. Indian Communists, whether laboring under 
inspiration from Moscow or from London, tended to 
stress the importance of organizational work amongst 
industrial workers in the big cities. 

The first result was that Indian communism scored 
its earliest achievements in the organization of militant 
Red Flag trade unions such as the Girni Kamgar Union 
of Bombay millhands. By concentration on industrial 
workers, however', Indian Communists failed to acquire 
anything like a popular following in the myriads of vil- 
lages where 80 per cent of the Indian population lived 
and worked. To be sure, M. N. Roy tried to avoid this 
isolation by urging the creation of a Workers and 
Peasants party after 1925, but his sagacious effort 
proved to have been in vain. In 1928 the Commintern 
enunciated a new "left" strategy; Roy's position was 
thereby undermined and the broad-based Workers and 
Peasants parties were allowed to wither away untended. 
The second thorny issue which had to be faced by 
the CPI intellectuals — and the one which caused them 
the greatest difficulty — was the matter of policy toward 
the Indian nationalist movement; specifically, the rela- 
tionship of the CPI with the Indian National Congress 
led by Mahatma Gandhi and the young Jawaharlal 

From the point of view of the CPI, the issue was: 
Could the Congress be "trusted" as a genuinely anti- 
imperialist and hence "revolutionary" movement, or was 
it a petty-bourgeois, "reformist" movement whose 
leadership would subvert the revolution and compromise 
with the imperialists? A host of Communist voices 
were raised in the decade of the twenties in a variety 
of answers to these questions. The result was con- 
siderable vacillation by Indian Communists in their 
posture vis-a-vis the National Congress. 

Those who believed the National Congress to be 
genuinely anti-imperialist wanted the CPI to work with 
and through it. For them the National Congress was 
a useful "ally" and a meaningful, broad-based popular 
movement with which the CPI should be connected. 
Those, however, who held the Congress to be "re- 
formist" completely mistrusted its character and argued 
that communism would be endangered, if not subverted, 
if the CPI worked with or through the National Con- 
gress. In 1927 the CPI policy was, at least for the 
moment, to work with the Congress. But in 1928 all 
of that was changed. 

In 1928, as has been mentioned, the Commintern 
enunciated its new "left" strategy which, among other 
things, described the colonial nationalist movements as 
bourgeois in character. Though M. N. Roy objected 
vigorously to this formulation, his voice went unheeded 
and the CPI adopted an anti-Congress line. This line 
weakened its influence with the masses in India who 
adored Gandhi and favored the Congress, and the CPI 
shrank in significance. In 1929 the government of 
India declared the CPI to be an illegal party and it was 
forced underground. This development too had an ad- 
verse effect upon its ability to create a mass base. 

In 1933 and 1934 there emerged a Fabian, gradua- 
list socialist group of intellectuals within the ranks of 
Indian nationalism. This group, under the approving 
eye of Jawaharlal Nehru, became a recognized "wing" 
of the National Congress, even though the Congress 
also had a conservative wing which found Fabian social- 
ism rather distasteful. The Socialist group, led by 
Jayaprakash Narayan and Srimati Kamaladevi Chat- 
topadhyay, embarked upon a campaign to create vigor- 
ous, Congress-sponsored, Kisan Sabhas, or Peasant 
Unions. This of course was an area which had been 
neglected by the CPI since 1928 and it gave the social- 
ists within the Congress a rural following which the 
underground CPI soon viewed with envy. The social- 
ists, however, were Congress members and linked the 
Kisan Sabhas organizationally with the National Con- 
gress. Meanwhile, individual Communists did what 
they could to enter these peasant leagues and influence 
their thinking. 

In 1935 events in Europe caused international com- 

munism to abandon the "left" policy of 1928 in favor 
of a new United Front policy against fascism. Enuncia- 
tion of the United Front policy enabled Indian Com- 
munists to reverse their attitude toward the National 
Congress, which they now entered and sought to radi- 
calize. Unfortunately for them, the existing socialist 
group in the Congress stood in their way. The Con- 
gress Socialists — who had already shown themselves to 
be active in support of the leading role of the Congress 
— more or less pre-empted the ground which CPI mem- 
bers might have gained. Nonetheless, the CPI used 
the United Front period as vigorously as they could to 
influence the nature of the Congress. More particularly, 
they entered the Kisan Sabhas, which had been formed 
by the Socialists, and gradually weaned many of them 
away from the Fabian tactics they had been pursuing. 
It is in the irony of history that the next great de- 
velopment in world affairs — the coming of the Second 
World War — gave the Indian Communists a great op- 
portunity and, in the end, turned out to be their virtual 
undoing. Let us see how this came about. 

When war erupted in Europe the British Gov- 
ernment, without Indian advice, announced 
that India was now at war with the Axis 
Powers. For all sorts of internal reasons this pro- 
nouncement was, at best, met with very mixed emotions 
in India. On balance, it is safe to say that the bulk of 
the population was quite unenthusiastic, while most of 
the leading nationalists were opposed. For a period 
of time, therefore, the anti-war position of the CPI was 
in no obvious way different from the position of the 
National Congress. CPI leaders could earn public 
favor by repeating what nationalist leaders were saying 
against involvement in the war, without the active con- 
sent of India's chosen leaders. At least the CPI was 
no more enthusiastic about the war than were the bulk 
of the Indian people, while the usual war-time shortages 
and hardships caused popular grumbling which the 
CPI could try to capitalize upon. 

However, that happy situation was not to last too 
long. The moment Hitler sent his legions across the 
border into Russia, the whole Communist attitude to- 
ward the war underwent a dramatic change. On the 
morning of the German invasion of Russia, the CPI 
changed the name of their newspaper from People's Age 
to People's War. From that moment the allied war 
effort had no more vigorous and enthusiastic supporters 
in India than the CPI. The British Government was so 
gratified by this measure of support that they quickly 
declared the party legal again and gave it financial sup- 
port so as to enable it to prosecute its pro-war propa- 
ganda among the apathetic or hostile masses. 


This was, of course, a virtual deathblow to the posi- 
tion of the CPI. It now stood naked and unadorned as 
the outstanding supporter of the hated, imperialist 
British Raj in India. While Gandhi and his followers 
were offering satyagraha against Indian involvement 
in the war, the CPI was urging all-out support of that 
war. CPI membership soon dropped to its lowest 
levels and the CPI was mocked in public debate. 
Enemies of the CPI also took the opportunity to de- 
nounce it as anti-national, because its policy on the 
war had so blatantly been dictated by Moscow. By 
1945 the CPI was a legal party with a handful of fol- 
lowers. The bulk of its remaining membership was to 
be found in the few Red Flag Unions it had created 
twenty-five years before. 

With the termination of the War, it became obvious 
that India would soon gain independence. What was 
not obvious, however, was whether independence would 
be granted to undivided India, or to India and to 
Pakistan. That question was to be resolved with in- 
tense acrimony between 1945 and 1947. The Com- 
munists, eager to rebuild their fallen fortunes, tried to 
play a role in the hot debate over Partition. But their 
position on Partition served them badly. 

Communism under Stalin had developed a nationali- 
ties theory. According to the doctrine laid down by 
Stalin, a genuine nationality group had the right of 
"self-determination." Whatever Stalin's motives may 
have been in enunciating his dogma, it was this dogma 
that led the CPI astray in post-war India. Following 
his theory, the CPI supported the Muslim demand for 
Pakistan — not, to be sure, without some hesitations. 
But, of course, the Pakistan demand was anathema to 
India's nationalists and to the non-Muslim majority. 
CPI support for Pakistan cost them much of the popu- 
lar toleration they might otherwise have been able to 
gain. When independence came in 1947, the CPI was 
wandering in a wilderness of its own creation. 

If the CPI was in the wilderness, the Congress was 
not. Its prestige and popular following had never been 
greater. The winning of independence, after so many 
years of effort, gave the Congress unparalleled standing 
in the nation, while Nehru's leadership ensured a popu- 
lar enthusiasm which could not be discounted. Thus, 
if the CPI were to recoup its losses, it would have to do 
so in the face of the success of the freedom movement 
as exemplified by Nehru's party. 

Tie decisions which the CPI had taken — men- 
tioned above — had brought it to low ebb. This 
decline in its prospects had, of course, been 
accompanied by factious and often times bitter disagree- 
ments over strategy and tactics among Communist lead- 


ers. In this way, the factionalism that was evident in 
the earliest days of communism in India had been per- 
petuated. After independence, further quarrels broke 
out amidst the Communists as they tried to evaluate 
their failures and chart an effective course for the 
future. Though the cliques were quite complex — and 
were divided over a number of issues — there was, after 
1948, a growing tendency for them to sort themselves 
out along two major axes. To oversimplify somewhat, 
these might be described as the Right group in the CPI, 
as contrasted with the Left CPI faction. Each of these 
complex alignments tended to advance different sets of 
explanations for past failures and different prescriptions 
for the repair of Communist fortunes. (Lack of space 
makes it impossible to look closely at the many issues 
over which the factions disagreed.) 

By 1949, however, a further complexity had been 
added to the scene. Chinese communism under Mao 
had emerged victorious. Despite Stalinist orthodoxy 
and its emphasis upon the urban proletariat, Mao had 
forged a winning movement based on revolutionary 
peasant support. The so-called Left group in the CPI 
began to turn toward the Mao view of the course of 
revolution, and away from the Moscow line. The 
Right group in the CPI, however, was by no means 
persuaded that this was not heresy. However, the 
Right group had no magic formulas to advance, so 
the party drifted toward a Maoist position. This led 
to the adventure in rural Telengana in which the Left 
group among the Indian Communists thought they saw 
their movement emulating Mao's successes at Yenan. 
Revolution in the countryside emerged as the slogan 
of the hour. 

Fortunately the Nehru government had popular sup- 
port, an efficient administrative machine, and a tolerably 
competent and wholly loyal army. With little difficulty 
the Communist revolution in Telengana was suppressed 
and Left communism in India discredited. In a few 
months of decisive action, the Government of India had 
reasserted its ability to govern. This, by the way, en- 
abled the Right group among Indian Communists to 
recapture leadership in Communist ranks around their 
policy which now emphasized work among the urban 
proletariat and a policy of coming to power peacefully 
by electoral means. In 1951 and 1952 the CPI con- 
tested the elections in a legal fashion and won seats in 
various local legislatures, though in no case were they 
within reach of a majority. These modest successes, 
however, seemed preferable to the discredited polxy of 
rural rebellion. This policy reached its high point in 
the 1957 elections when the CPI became the largest 
single bloc in the legislature of Kerala State and, with 
the support of a few independent leftists, were able to 
form a Ministry in that State. 

Left to right at the Alumni Lectures: Crane, Gillin, Associate Professor Warren Lerner, and Dr. Brewster Snow '32. 

By 1958, however, inept handling of several thorny 
issues had cost them their support and Kerala fell prey 
to disorders. 

Nehru's government intervened and suspended 
cabinet rule. The Communists were apparent- 
ly in a blind alley again. This led to renewed 
quarrels within the CPI over strategy and tactics, in- 
tensified by personal rivalries between various CPI 
leaders. An effort was made in 1958 to patch up the 
differences through formation of a new Central Execu- 
tive Committee around a policy of Left Unity, reminis- 
cent of the old days of the United Front against Hitler. 
But no striking gains were made — at the polls or in mass 
organizational efforts. The underlying fight between the 
pro-Peking and the pro-Moscow groups continued, 
thereby hampering the effectiveness of Communist tac- 
tics at many levels. 

Then, in 1962, fate dealt the Communists a cruel 
blow. The Peking government decided to use its armies 
along the Indian frontier to settle the border dispute 
with New Delhi. Indians of all camps were electrified 
by patriotic fervor in the face of Chinese invasion. 
There was genuine national clamor for a vigorous mili- 
tary effort to drive the invaders out. This put Indian 
communism in a most difficult spot while, at the same 
time, it convinced almost all non-Communist Indians 
that communism was a menace to India's sovereignty. 
The Right wing of the CPI tried to avoid open con- 
demnation of China's invasion but found it impossible 
to do so. The Left, or Peking group in the CPI, would 
of course say nothing critical of China. This discredited 
the CPI in India and gave the Government of India a 

welcome excuse to imprison those Communists who 
failed to make clear their opposition to Chinese in- 
vasion. Most important, perhaps, it brought into the 
open the fight between the Moscow and Peking groups 
in the CPI. That fight has become ever more overt 
and bitter in the years since 1962. By now it can more 
or less be said that there are two rival Indian Com- 
munist parties and each of these parties has its own fac- 
tions and cliques within it. Forty-five years after its 
founding, the Communist movement in India seems to 
be as far from victory as it was when founded. 

If this historical excursion has anything to offer, I 
would suggest that it asks us to be unusually sensitive 
to the local circumstances and conditions in which a 
political movement such as communism has to take 
shape. My comments have sought to indicate the ways 
in which the Indian setting, Indian trends, and Indian 
conditions have operated to limit and to vitiate the de- 
velopment of an effective Communist movement. It has 
been seen that communism failed in India because its 
strategy was not suited to local circumstances. It has 
also been seen that Indian communism failed because 
it has not been able to accommodate Indian nationalism. 
For reasons which I have tried to indicate, the Indian 
scene was not hospitable to the Communist formula. 
Gandhi and Nehru and the Congress party occupied 
center stage in India, leaving the Communists some- 
where backstage in the recesses of the wings. It is, I 
think, heartening that forty-five years of communist ef- 
fort in India have achieved so very little. It is also in- 
formative, I submit, that a Communist movement which 
failed to capture the force of local nationalism under its 
banners has thereby failed to achieve power. 





A Look at Duke Football 

By Clay Lewis '58 

It is tempting, on the eve of the 1965 football cam- 
paign, to make a pre-season forecast; but victory 
or defeat for Duke must ultimately be decided on 
the gridiron and not in the pages of this, or any other, 
magazine. More fruitful and far less risky is a look 
into the conditions surrounding football at Duke — its 
environment within the University. 

Duke football, unlike that at many universities, is 
not kept in a hothouse, isolated from the main currents 
of change within the institution. There is no physical 
education major for football players, nor industrial arts, 
nor any other place to hide during classes. Football 
players at Duke — just as the football program itself — 
are very much a part of the University. The young 
men who meet competition on the gridiron each Satur- 
day afternoon are student-athletes. Come Monday 
morning they will sit in classrooms with other students, 
taking the same tests, and feeling the same tensions of 
academic life. 

During recent years the academic standards of the 
University have risen sharply, and, correspondingly, 
admission requirements have also risen. How has this 
affected Blue Devil football? In 1950 Duke recruited 
football players from the bottom quarter of their high 
school classes. No admission tests were required. An 
applicant submitted his "high school record, a medical 
certificate, and satisfactory evidence of his good char- 
acter and ability." Duke selected football players from 


many applicants who met these minimal standards. 
Today, recruiting football athletes has become far 
more difficult. The would-be athlete must meet the 
higher admission requirements of the University. For 
Trinity College in 1964, 67 per cent of entering fresh- 
men were in the top 10 per cent of their high school 
classes; 88 per cent were in the top 20 per cent; and 
98 per cent in the top 30 per cent. (Note: Duke has 
traditionally drawn many more athletes from public 
high schools; freshmen from independent schools are 
not included in these figures.) There are far fewer 
athletes today who can meet these admission require- 
ments than there were fifteen or twenty years ago. 

Since athletes must, as always, attend classes with 
the student body, waiving admission standards would 
court disaster. Very quickly the unqualified athlete 
would find himself floundering in the classroom, unable 
to survive in the academic environment. He would soon 
lose his eligibility, and perhaps his place in the Univer- 
sity as well. This is of no benefit to the football for- 
tunes of Duke, and also does the athlete a disservice. 
The Duke football athlete must meet admission re- 

So Duke must find athletes who can compete in the 
classroom as well as on the football field. Each sum- 
mer Carl James, assistant athletic director and the man 
behind Duke's recruiting effort, sends a questionnaire 
to high school football coaches. On the questionnaire

coaches list rising seniors who they believe have the 
potential to play intercollegiate football at Duke. When 
the questionnaires are returned, James eliminates all 
but one-quarter of the coaches' recommendations for 
athletic reasons, i.e., height, weight, knowledge of past 
performance. Before contacting those remaining, he 
sends for their high school transcripts and academic 
records. Only one-quarter of these records show stu- 
dents who are admissible to the University, whereas 
over half were academically qualified fifteen years ago, 
according to James. Thus the pool of potential foot- 
ball talent from which Duke must choose its teams has 
been cut in half by the rising academic standards of the 

A case in point is the recruiting difficulty Duke ex- 
periences in North Carolina, traditional bastion of Blue 
Devil strength. Eight out of eleven Duke Ail-Ameri- 

cans in recent years have come from North Carolina; 
in the upset victory over Ohio State in 1954, Duke 
started ten North Carolinians. But out of thirty foot- 
ball scholarships awarded to freshmen entering this fall, 
only five recipients are from the state. "A boy from 
North Carolina who is simply admissible to Duke is a 
prime prospect for a liberal and highly esteemed 
scholarship from one of the other institutions in the 
state," explained a spokesman for the Duke coaching 
staff. Blue Devil recruiting must accommodate the 
rising admission standards of the University. 

The foes Duke will face on the gridiron during the 
coming season do not, with one possible exception, 
have comparable admission standards. Duke's are 
higher and more competitive. For admission to Duke, 
all students must present scores from the Scholastic 
Aptitude Test and three College Board Achievement 


Tests. In addition, the prospective student from a pub- 
lic high school must rank in the upper one-third of his 
class, as was shown in the above statistics. Duke's 
opponents in the Atlantic Coast Conference — Carolina, 
Wake Forest, State, South Carolina, Clemson, and Vir- 
ginia — require the aptitude test but not achievement 
tests for admission. Georgia Tech and Illinois have 
the same requirements. All are less competitive than 
those of Duke. Pittsburgh, the Blue Devil opponent 
on October 8, requires both the aptitude and achieve- 
ment tests, but students need rank only in the upper 
three-fifths of their secondary school class, according 
to recently published information. (Duke requires the 
upper third from public high schools. ) Only Rice, as 
a possible exception, has comparable admission require- 
ments. However, many Rice athletes have a physical 
education major which may be less demanding than 
standard academic fare. 

Thus Duke's competitors for the coming season do 
not experience the same football recruiting difficulties. 
Their teams can be selected from a larger pool of aca- 
demically qualified applicants. 

Not only does Duke face unique difficulties find- 
ing academically qualified football athletes; the 
University also offers fewer grant-in-aid awards 
to those who do qualify than any of her major com- 
petitors in the Maryland to Alabama quadrant of south- 
eastern states, according to an Athletic Office source. 
With a maximum of 112 such awards available, Duke 
ranks at the very bottom. 

When the student-athlete arrives on campus after 
crossing admission barriers and showing himself quali- 
fied both academically and athletically, he quickly finds 
that his lot is far from easy. In the classroom he sits 
beside a student who also comes from the top-third, 
if not the top-tenth, of his high school class. The 
student-athlete must make a satisfactory showing in 
this competitive situation, while performing each Satur- 
day afternoon against many of football's strongest 
powerhouses. The demands on his time, alone, are 

Remember, too, that the Duke student-athlete comes 
to the campus with a record of high academic achieve- 
ment in high school, or else he would not have gained 
admission. He expects to do well in the classroom. 
In fact, many of these student-athletes look forward to 
attending graduate or professional school after gradua- 
tion. According to an Athletic Office source, this is 
truer today, with higher admission standards, than it 
was two or three decades ago. Thus many football 
athletes are highly motivated toward academic achieve- 
ment so that they can either succeed in their chosen 
profession or enter a suitable graduate or professional 


school. On the 1964 squad there were thirty-three 
student-athletes in liberal arts; fourteen in pre-med, 
pre-dental, and chemistry; eleven in engineering and 
math; seven in accounting and business; and six in 
pre-law. More often than not, the Duke student-athlete, 
because of his career aspirations, wants to do better 
than average work in the classroom. 

The multiple demands on his time stretch the 
student-athlete to his limit. On the one hand, he must 
find time for laboratories and studying; on the other, 
time for football practice and game trips. In 1950 
football practice started at 3:00 p.m., during the warm 
daylight hours, and lasted until 5:30 or even later. 
Today, practice is held under the lights and begins as 
late as 7:30 p.m. on Monday, and on other practice 
days at about 4:30. Even with this arrangement foot- 
ball players frequently cannot make practice because 
of early evening block examinations and tests, or make- 
up work in the lab. It is fortunate when each member 
of the squad has had twelve hours of practice (including 
skull sessions) during the week. In 1950 each player 
had fifteen to eighteen hours of practice per week. What 
has forced this reduction in practice time? In recent 
years the undergraduate student body has grown. This 
growth has created demands for classroom space which 
have resulted in the scheduling of more afternoon 
classes, even in the arts and sciences. Also, with more 
athletes in the sciences (engineering, pre-med, chemis- 
try), there are more afternoon labs which prevent team 
members from attending earlier practice sessions. 

In addition, stepped up programs in foreign lan- 
guages have created more classroom hours for almost 
all students. When the new language laboratories went 
into operation, all basic language courses began re- 
quiring four hours of classroom recitation each week, 
instead of the previous three, and students must also 
spend at least two hours in the language labs, usually 
in the afternoon. Thus the student-athlete has three 
more hours of required work per week than fifteen 
years ago, and two of these usually fall in the after- 
noon. The foreign language requirement of six semes- 
ters (three academic years), or equivalent, remains 
for the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science de- 

While academic demands, both in quantity and 
quality, have become stiff er during the last 
fifteen years, so, too, have Duke's football 
opponents. Before the early fifties, Duke faced out-of- 
conference opponents like Virginia Tech, University 
of Richmond, William and Mary, and Washington and 
Lee, along with traditional rivals Georgia Tech and 
Navy. The Blue Devils in that era also regularly faced 
Tennessee. But today, William and Mary has been 

replaced in the Duke schedule by football powerhouses 
such as Michigan, Southern Cal, and Notre Dame. 
The athlete faces tougher competition in the classroom 
and on the gridiron. 

How does the student-athlete, caught in the midst 
of these pulls on his time and energy, respond? Ac- 
cording to coaches and most players, studies must 
come first. The athlete needs to maintain his eligibility 
and remain at the University. Also, because he often 
aspires to a non-athletic career, he wants to do well in 
his studies. "Football is a four-hour course" one mem- 
ber of next year's squad said, revealing his attitude 
toward the sport and academic work. Evidently today's 
athlete recognizes that his own interests, and those of 
football and the University, are best served when he 
succeeds in the classroom. 

The faculty who meet the athlete in the classroom 
usually treat him as a student, without prejudice or a 
concession to his unique role on the campus. How- 
ever, faculty make allowances for absences occasioned 
by football trips and schedule make-up tests. Though 
a few "crip" courses must remain, they are few and 
far between for the athlete — if, indeed, he is looking 
for them. Out among the students on the campus, the 
football athlete finds very little special recognition. Un- 
like many universities where football players live in 
separate dormitories, the Duke athlete lives among the 
student body and is accepted as a peer. Even on Satur- 
days the team is accepted matter-of-factly by the seem- 
ingly sophisticated student body. "There are no rac- 
coon coats here," a football player said recently. "The 
students are sophisticated. They aren't real supporters, 
dyed-in-the-wool fans — unless we're winning." Per- 
haps this attitude has prevailed since football began at 
Duke, perhaps not. It is, however, a part of the cam- 
pus environment for today's Blue Devil squads. 

Another essential element of the Duke football en- 
vironment is money — the wherewithal to mount a strong 
gridiron competitor. According to the Athletic Office, 
the cost of Duke football has tripled during the last fif- 
teen years, as it has throughout the country. The train- 
ing table, where football athletes eat during the season, 
cost $27 per man per month in 1950. Today it costs 
$100. This only illustrates the across-the-board rise in 
Duke football costs. To meet these rising costs, Duke 
gate receipts have also gone up, but not as fast as those 
at other institutions. The nature of the University is a 
partial explanation. As a private institution, Duke draws 
its students from a wide geographic area; thus its alumni 
are not as likely to remain within driving distance of 
the campus after graduation as those of state supported 
schools. This limits the number of alumni who can 
return for football games and thereby financially sup- 
port the team. The number of alumni, and therefore 

financial support, is also limited by the relatively small 
size, by today's standards, of Duke's student body. 
Adding still more to the financial problems of Duke 
football are the other first-class football powers in the 
immediate vicinity of the campus. Duke must com- 
pete for gate receipts with these neighboring institu- 
tions — unlike Georgia Tech who can monopolize the 
Saturday afternoon action in Atlanta. 

Despite these problems Duke football is self- 
sustaining. It receives from the University only 
a limited number of tuition-free scholarships 
and nothing more. Student fees, which can be con- 
sidered gate receipts, and the regular sale of tickets 
provide the funds for fielding the Blue Devil team. 

When the conditions surrounding Duke football 
are discussed, the final arbiter must always be the rec- 
ord. In this, the Blue Devils rank thirteenth in the 
nation with their 161 wins, 79 losses, and 14 ties since 
1931. Only one non-state supported school, Notre 
Dame, outranks Duke. Surely this enviable record is 
an incentive in recruiting athletes, and a tradition felt 
by coaches and team members. But the Duke record 
since 1955, when academic standards began to rise 
and the gridiron opponents got tougher, shows 52 wins 
out of 91 contests, for a 57 per cent average — while 
1931-1955 brought the Blue Devils 170 wins in 241 
games, or a 71 per cent average. These averages 
should, of course, be taken with a large statistical grain 
of salt. 

Strangely enough, the record also shows that last 
year's lackluster season may herald future years of 
gridiron glory. In 1959, when Duke suffered humilia- 
tion (0-50) at the hands of Carolina in the final game 
of a losing season, many aficionados thought the Blue 
Devils were washed up as a major football power. The 
very next season, 1960, Duke roared back with 8 wins 
and 3 losses, edging Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl. 
What happened? Most observers credit this dramatic 
reversal to the team's renewed determination — a will 
to win forged in defeat. The 1960 rebound showed 
once more that football is a contest between men, and, 
like all things human, often defies the laws of proba- 

How about the upcoming season? Will Carolina 
be beaten? When all is said and done, when the trend- 
spotters and prognosticators have had their say, the 
fortunes of Duke football will still lie in the minds and 
muscle of the young men who will take the field this 
fall and in seasons to come. Nobody would have it any 
other way.

Before the Eighteenth Annual Loy- 
alty Fund Campaign ended on 
June 30, plans were already being 
made for the University's 1965-66 
campaign. The individual responsible 
for much of this planning, William 
B. Jennings, executive secretary of 
Loyalty Fund Programs, has already 
announced that this year's campaign 
will be launched on October 2 when 
alumni class agents gather on campus 
for a workshop and luncheon. 

While he was in the alumni publi- 
cations office the other day, Mr. Jen- 
nings explained that he felt that the 
work of class agents, which has always 
been an integral part of the campaign, 
will take on added significance during 
the coming year. This is particularly 
true, he said, in light of action taken 
by the National Council at its com- 
mencement meeting. 

It was at this meeting, which some 
people say was the most important 
in the Council's eighteen-year his- 
tory, that a Loyalty Fund goal of 
$1,000,000, to be attained during the 
1967-68 campaign, was adopted. Since 
the goal will be approached in three 
stages, with the 1965-66 goal being 
$675,000 and the 1966-67 goal $800,- 
000, it is important that the first stage 
provide a foundation of enthusiasm. 

It was explained at the Council 
meeting that it was imperative that 
Loyalty Fund goals be raised in order 


to obtain operating funds which will 
help sustain University development 
during and after the first phase of a 
ten-year $187,411,000 capital gifts 
program. The first phase of this pro- 
gram, announced in advance to Coun- 
cil members, will cover a three-year 
period during which $102,876,000 will 
be raised. Also, Loyalty Fund con- 
tributions over the next three years 
will be included in that total — specifi- 
cally as part of $12,300,000 needed 
for current budget support 

The intricacies of the coming Loy- 
alty Fund Campaign will be explained 
to class agents at the October 2 work- 
shop, said Mr. Jennings. He empha- 
sized, however, that the workshop was 
not a one-way affair with alumni de- 
partment officials doing all the talking. 
Questions are asked and answered, he 
said, and there is also criticism — such 
as the agent who stood up last year 
and complained about solicitation let- 
ters being too lengthy. 


A memo containing admission fig- 
ures on children of alumni came 
through this office the other day show- 
ing that 398 children had applied for 
admission to Duke. Of this number, 
197 applied for admission to Trinity 
College, 30 to the College of Engi- 

neering, 156 to The Woman's College, 
and 13 to the School of Nursing. 

Two hundred and twenty-eight chil- 
dren of alumni were accepted out of 
the 398 who applied. The number 
accepted by school and college was: 
Trinity College, 123; College of En- 
gineering, 19; The Woman's College, 
79; School of Nursing, 7. 

Out of the 228 who were accepted, 
only 160 actually enrolled. This fig- 
ure was divided as follows: Trinity 
College, 79; College of Engineering, 
11; The Woman's College, 63; and the 
School of Nursing, 7. 

Coming Home 

For the third time in the past five 
years the Clemson Tigers have been 
scheduled as the Homecoming oppo- 
nent. The first two games were split, 
Duke losing 7-17 in 1961 and winning 
35-30 in 1963. 

The rivalry between the two teams 
has been interesting, so a large num- 
ber of alumni are expected to return 
to the campus for this year's game on 
October 16. Festivities, of course, ac- 
tually begin on Friday when the regis- 
tration desk for alumni opens in the 
lobby of the West Campus Union. 

During the day the campus is a bed- 
lam of blasting record players and 
shouted directions as students throw 

than fun and football. The Engineer- 
ing Alumni Association holds its semi- 
annual meeting that weekend on Oc- 
tober 16 at 10:30 a.m. 

President Ray Harden BSME "47 
will preside over the election of new 
officers and the presentation of an Out- 
standing Alumnus Award. It will be 
the first time in the past two years that 
the award has been given.

Trinity College and Herbert J. Herring 
Are Synonymous in the Minds of Many Alumni 

James B. Duke was a practical man, and this prac- 
ticality is reflected in the Indenture of Trust which 
he signed in 1924 to create Duke University upon 
the foundation of Trinity College. He was in- 
terested in the whole man, in the civic and moral 
qualities of his being as well as the intellectual quali- 
ties. As a relatively small liberal arts college, Trinity 
had a solid academic reputation. It was also known, 
wrote the late President William P. Few, for its concern 
with "the physical, social, and moral care of all under- 
graduates." The College, then, seemed to possess a 
basic structure which could be expanded along the lines 
of interest expressed by Mr. Duke in the Indenture. 

A plan for this expansion was explained by Dr. 
Few in the Report of the President, 1925-1931: "The 
Graduate School of Arts and Sciences with its objective 
pursuit of knowledge and devotion to truth, and other 
graduate schools, particularly the Medical School, will, 
like American higher education in general, show the 
influence of German universities. The colleges — the 
one for men and the other for women — with the empha- 
sis on character and culture and on training for service 
to country, to causes, and to humanity, will be in the 
English tradition of education. This will explain the 
architecture here; for the College is the heart of the 
University and these buildings tie us to the great his- 
toric traditions of learning in the English-speaking race. 

The colleges, essentially in the English tradition of edu- 
cation, and graduate and professional schools, affected 
by German and other influences, are to be welded into 
an American university that will seek to know and use 
the best that has been achieved elsewhere, but that will 
at the same time seek to make its own contribution to 
the causes of education." This seems to be a realistic 
statement of President Few's vision of the University — 
not a rationalization of thought extended for the benefit 
of those who might have objected to Trinity's being 
placed in the larger setting of Duke University. 

In order to assume the role assigned to it within the 
University structure, a central role of cultivating charac- 
ter as well as intellect, the College necessarily relied 
on an abundance of personal contact between adminis- 
tration, faculty, and students. These personal relation- 
ships were very much in evidence in those early days of 

One man, Herbert J. Herring, had joined the staff 
as assistant dean in 1924 shortly before Mr. Duke 
signed the Indenture. He labored during the period of 
transition to maintain the atmosphere of intimate 
student-teacher relationships which had characterized 
the College. Today, he symbolizes for many people 
an era when concern for the total being of the individual 
student was heavily emphasized. 

Dean Herring first came to Trinity in 1918 as a 


freshman student from his home in Pender County in 
the eastern part of North Carolina. Four years later 
it was stated in the Chanticleer that "Everybody knows 
Herring. . . ." So it seems that even then he was using 
the facile manner he has for drawing people into his 
own sphere of interest and making them feel at ease 

A second characteristic is noted in that 1922 Chan- 
ticleer. "His chief delight," it says, "is to deliver an 
extemporaneous speech. . . . Sometimes we have al- 
most believed that we could smell midnight oil in these 
extempore efforts." A list of his undergraduate debat- 
ing activities confirms his interest in speech — and his 

"I majored in economics," said Dean Herring, "with 
the intention of going into law," a field where his ora- 
torical and debating skills would have served him well. 
When he graduated, however, he was not certain of his 
interest in the law as a vocation. He needed time, he 
felt, in order to come to a decision. Undecided, he 
went to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where he 
taught English at R. J. Reynolds High School for two 

Even though he did not intend to make teaching 
his career, he found that "working with students was 
more appealing than [he] had anticipated." This ap- 
peal, as well as the attractiveness of being able to return 
to his own College, led to an affirmative decision 
when he was offered the opportunity to come to Trinity 
as assistant dean. The law had lost a barrister, but the 
talents that would have made the Dean effective before 
the bench were definitely not lost in this transfer of 
vocational interest. More than one colleague or stu- 
dent will testify to being confronted by the Dean with 
an argumentative interrogation (interspersed with an 
extemporaneous speech, perhaps) which required him 
to state his case in concise and logical terms. The Dean 
never settled for a gray haze of verbiage. 

If he was aggressive in discussions with students and 
faculty, it was always an affable and fair aggressive- 
ness. It never made him unapproachable. And 
this quality must have been appreciated by his superior, 
Dean W. H. Wannamaker, who reported to President 
Few in 1931 as follows: "During all the years of my 
deanship I have sought to maintain personal rather 
than professional relationships with our students. I 
am deeply convinced that the greatest weakness in our 
colleges, especially those caring for more than one 
thousand students, is the assumed impossibility of main- 
taining a living contact of students with officers and 
teachers. The good that can be accomplished for 
college students through a non-professional, human 
interest in them on the part of older college men is 

immeasurable. This relationship must be maintained 
if the College is to perform its greatest function. . . . 
I wish here to commend most heartily the work of 
senior Assistant Dean Herring, who is fast developing 
into the most valuable man in his work I know. . . ." 

The value of his work is reflected in his rise through 
the administrative ranks of the University. He was 
assistant dean from 1924 until 1935, when he was 
promoted to dean of men. In 1942 he was made dean 
of Trinity College, a position he held until 1956. He 
also served from 1946 until his retirement last Decem- 
ber 31 as vice president in the division of student life. 
In addition, he taught speech for 18 years, from 1925 to 

Throughout his 40 years of service, Dean Herring 
(he will always be known as Dean to most alumni — a 
more approachable title, perhaps, than vice president) 
found his greatest satisfaction in dealing with individual 
students. Not every student, however, found his great- 
est satisfaction in dealing with the Dean. 

"There is a normal desire on the part of the student 
for freedom," he said. And freedom, of course, implies 
responsibility and the acceptance of consequences. 
A student may have sometimes committed an act which 
resulted in the University, rather than the student, 
having to publicly accept undesirable consequences. 
The Dean's loyalty to the institution (and it is a fierce 
loyalty in this time of academic-musical-chairs) would 
never tolerate such a situation. Some students have 
felt, therefore, that their freedom was being suppressed. 
"You're naturally going to alienate a few people tempo- 
rarily by doing what you have to do," said Dean 

His insistence on individual responsibility comple- 
ments his belief that everyone, as he once said to a 
group of high school students, "must stand for some- 
thing." It is this philosophy, perhaps, which led the 
undergraduate student body to request that he speak 
to them in the Chapel the Sunday following the bombing 
of Pearl Harbor. "If we do not have a set of ideals 
based on intelligence and moral courage, based in a 
deep faith," he declared, "then I fail to see what there 
is to live for. It is a vital necessity." Uncertainty, he 
said, must not be allowed to destroy individual values. 

His concern for individuals is also reflected in his 
family life. In 1957, when he was named one of Dur- 
ham's "Fathers of the Year," he said in a newspaper 
interview that "You have to spend time with your chil- 
dren — live with them, play with them, and work with 
them." Time and example, he said, are the most 
essential things a parent can give. "Of course," he 
added, "one of the first steps in becoming a good father 
is to marry a good woman" — and that statement is 
characteristic of his modesty and humor. 


An inveterate coffee-drinker, fisherman, and talker. 

Dean Herring's interests, however, have not been 
limited to his family and the University. He has been 
active within the community, so much so that many 
people in Durham will say that he has done more 
than any other person on campus to establish Univer- 
sity-town relationships. He has worked for and led 
such organizations as the United Fund, Red Cross, 
Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, and Executives 
Club. He is a director of Security Savings and Loan 
Association and of the First Union National Bank. He 
is known, too, for his activities in the church, particu- 
larly his teaching of the Julian S. Carr Bible Class at 
Trinity Methodist Church. 

But his community has extended beyond the bound- 
aries of Durham. He has served on educational com- 
mittees at the national and international level. The 
world, he realizes, has rapidly grown smaller. In 1941, 
long before the end of World War II, he told a group 
of students that "We must think in terms of world 
citizenship." He was able to look beyond an expedient 

present — an ability which characterized his service as 

Another ability, perhaps related to the above, has 
also been characteristic of the Dean. This is his ca- 
pacity to recognize that change is inevitable. But 
change, for him as for Dean Wannamaker before him, 
does not mean that there is any substitute for personal 
relations. "There is no substitute," he said. Still, he 
recognizes that the University, that Trinity College, has 
become a more impersonal place. 

There are, of course, reasons for this predicament. 
The College, as well as the University, has grown con- 
siderably since those early days of transition. The 
interrelationships of a College on a University campus, 
of molding character and promoting scholarly inquiry, 
of teaching and research — all these areas, if not properly 
related, can contribute to conflicts of interest which, in 
turn, can contribute to an atmosphere of impersonality. 

"There has to be an effort to solve these problems," 
he said. And he points out that the current adminis- 
tration is continuing to make those efforts. In both 
curriculum and living arrangements, improvements are 
being made with the individual student in mind (See 
"from EAST and WEST" — Editor). These students 
must leave Duke, he said, with the feeling "that this 
University stands for the best that men know, and with 
the realization that there will always be changes and 
advancements which will create problems requiring 
new solutions." 

Not very long ago, Dean Herring was honored 
at a dinner attended by many of his friends. 
An inveterate coffee-drinker and fisherman, he 
was kidded about both habits — as well as his speech- 
making ability. But not everything was spoken lightly. 
Among those who spoke in a serious vein was Associate 
Professor of Religion Barney L. Jones, one of many 
individuals who began their administrative training un- 
der Dean Herring. "When this University was built," 
he said, "more than stone was quarried out of the soil 
of North Carolina. There were men: Few, and Flowers, 
and Wannamaker, and Jordan; and you, sir, were a 
part of that illustrious company. You were one of 
the principal men who labored to hold this place to- 
gether and to keep it moving forward during the great 
depression, in times of war and periods of administra- 
tive instability and change. You represent more than 
the principle of continuity and our link with the past. 
You were a bridge connecting Few and Flowers and 
Edens. You are part of that vital channel through 
which the ideals and principles of Trinity College and 
Duke University have been transmitted to the present, 
providing us with that strong foundation upon which, 
God willing, we shall build together a greater future."

If the Roman god, Vulcan, were around today, that extraordinary ironworker 
might be astounded by the feats which his modern counterparts are performing 
— and without the use of supernatural powers. 

At Central Foundry Division's Saginaw plant, he would find skilled metal-molding 
technicians using a specially designed electric induction furnace which keeps 
molten metals at 2750 degrees Fahrenheit. The metals are poured into molds 
which produce an amazing variety of vital automotive components with superior 
quality and dependability. 

More than 25,000 General Motors people are employed in various phases of 
metal casting. This is not surprising because metals are basic to the manufacture 
of all CM products. Actually, these workers are but a small fraction of the total of

A Huddle of Heads for 56 

The trees've gotten taller," said one 
person, "and that's when you can 
really tell you haven't been around in 
a long time." And another said, "But 
the same waitresses are still working in 
the Dope Shop." So some things have 
changed and some things have remained 
the same since the Class of 1956 de- 
parted from campus. This was the con- 
sensus of class representatives who re- 
turned to campus on August 6 to plan 
for a class reunion which will be held 
next June during commencement. 

Etta A. Blaney (Mrs. B.), whose hus- 
band is football coach at Durham High 
School, asked if it was necessary to have 
the reunion at that time of year. "A lot 
of alumni have children who'll still be 
in school at that time," she said, "and 
it'll be hard for them to get back to 
campus." Although the representatives 
agreed that this might be true in some 
cases, they felt that plans for activities 
for all reuniting classes had progressed 
too far to prevent any rescheduling for 
the 1966 reunion. 

The representatives then adopted an 

innovation in reunion preparations. They 
voted to send a class roster (containing 
addresses) to each member of the class, 
hoping to encourage personal correspon- 
dence between classmates who would like 
to see each other back on campus during 
the reunion. 

After specific reunion activities and 
committee chairmen had been suggested, 
Tom Neese. of Durham, class gift chair- 
man, said that no other Tenth Anni- 
versary Class had ever presented $10,000 
to the University through the Loyalty 

Fund. He recommended that the class 
set a record by raising this amount of 
money. The representatives also felt that 
such a goal would create enthusiasm for 
the reunion itself. So the recommenda- 
tion was adopted. 

Bryant Aldridge, of Greenville, S. C, 
class president, presided over the meet- 
ing which was held after lunch in the 
Italian Room of the West Campus Union. 
Others attending were Phil Leinbach, of 
Boston; Jerry M. Alexander, of Greens- 
boro, N. C; Mrs. Blaney; and Mr. Neese.

Francis L. Dale '43 was command- 
ing officer of the U.S.S. "Pillsbury" 
when it captured a German submarine 
on the high seas during World War II. 
Today, he is still capturing things. 

Last May he was elected president- 
elect of the Ohio State Bar Associa- 
tion. He will succeed to the presi- 
dency on July 1. 1966. 

Only a month later, on June 25, he 
was named president and chief execu- 
tive officer of the Cincinnati Enquirer. 

"He has a strong sense of social re- 
sponsibility and a willingness to give 
himself wholeheartedly to causes in 
the public interest," said a member of 
the Enquirer's board of directors. 

Mr. Dale is a partner in the law firm 
of Frost & Jacobs in Cincinnati. The 
father of four children, he is married 
to the former Kathleen Watkins '43. 

Korean Service 

The Rev. Carl W. Judy BD '43 has 
been cited by the Korean government 
for the second time in the past six 

A Methodist missionary in Korea 
for the past seventeen years, Mr. Judv 
was commended for "outstanding and 
unselfish services and contributions to 
the upgrading of public health pro- 
grams for the betterment of national 

He received his first citation in 1959 
for his work in establishing and help- 


ing to maintain the Chaplains Corps 
of the Republic of Korea Army. 

A native of Charleston, W. Va., Mr. 
Judy is primarily a district missionary 
working in evangelism and the training 
of Korean Christian workers. 

Better Rockets 

After making them for several years, 
D. W. Hege BSME '42 is now going 
to have to market and promote rockets 
in his new position of director of mar- 
keting at Rocketdyne, a division of 
North American Aviation, Inc. 

In the past he had over-all com- 
mand of engineering in the develop- 
ment of the Atlas propulsion system. 
He also worked on the development of 
engines for the Redstone, Thor, Jupi- 
ter, and Navaho missiles. 

More recently Mr. Hege was man- 
ager of advanced projects at Rocket- 
dyne. He worked in this capacity on 
rocket engines of the near and distant 
future. Now, it seems, he will have 
to sell them. 

Fighting Poverty 

Mary King Kneedler (Mrs. Jay I.) 
RN '36 has been named to a fourteen- 
member steering committee for the 
Office of Economic Opportunity Proj- 
ect Head Start. 

The Project is a pre-school program 
intended to help children of needy 
families in competing successfully with 

more fortunate classmates when they 
begin kindergarten or first grade. 

Many of these needy children, says 
the committee, have never "used cut- 
out scissors, looked at a picture 
book . . . , or been coaxed into com- 
pleting a simple task successfully .... 
Thus they learn more slowly . . . and 
have little curiosity and imagina- 
tion. . . . They think of the outside 
world and school as threatening 
places . . . and will start building a 
foundation of failure." The Project 
will attempt to help them reach higher. 

Mrs. Kneedler is a nurse and assis- 
tant professor at Western Carolina 
College in Cullowhee, N. C.

An Issue Devoted to Duke University's Future 

October Comments 

September 23 marked the formal beginning of the 
1965-66 academic year. It marked, as well, the 
beginning of the 129th year of the institution now 
identified as Duke University. 

The day (a Thursday) had an additional signifi- 
cance. It officially opened the "Fifth Decade" campaign 
for the very impressive amounts of money that Duke 
must have — to take a next and highly important step in 
its development. Symbolically and simultaneously, 
ground was broken for a major priority objective of the 
program, an addition to the Duke Library. 

Anyone familiar with the rather unique and certainly 
fascinating history of Duke knows that the institution's 
development has been characterized by periodic climac- 
tic occurrences, each producing a dramatic upsurge in 
its ability to serve the great causes of education. 

In 1838 Brantley York, a preacher itinerant by 
choice, opened the door of a Randolph County log cabin 
to establish another of his rural schools. And he must 
have spent many an uncertain morning that first winter 
wondering if enough pupils would show to make his 
devotion worthwhile. 

In 1851 Braxton Craven persuaded the Methodists 
of the state to assume responsibility for a college to be 
named Trinity, and he spent the rest of his life fighting 
for the sort of support that would give the college out- 
standing quality. John Franklin Crowell came down 
from Yale and, in 1892, moved Trinity to Durham to 
gain for it the impetus of an urban environment and a 
larger group of influential friends. 

With gentle persistence William Preston Few 
brought together in 1924 means and an opportunity and 
then observed the stones of a university laid one upon 
the other. By 1930 an edifice had arisen to compete 
with even the loftier institutions then on the skyline of 
higher education. 

It is curious, and perhaps mildly prophetic, that 
these major steps have occurred at intervals of about 40 
years. And while this fact may add somewhat to the 
appropriateness of the development effort now under- 
taken, the reasons for the "Fifth Decade" are much 
more impelling than some implied magic of history. 

The announcement of the campaign contains nothing 
startling and, truthfully, little that is new. The excep- 
tion, of course, is a roster of the men who have volun- 
teered to give to the program the strength of their leader- 
ship. But otherwise the people who form the greater 

Duke community — faculty, students, alumni, parents of 
students, neighbors, and friends — have for too long been 
too intimately involved in the study and in the planning 
and development of institutional objectives to permit 
current announcements the impact of surprise. 

This involvement has, of course, been quite delib- 
erate. Duke, by its very nature, is the joint enterprise of 
thousands of people, and its ability to give outstanding 
service depends upon their individual and collective 

This October issue of the Alumni Register reveals 
much about Duke's plans for months and years im- 
mediately ahead and it announces some equally exciting 
plans for seeking the means of implementation. Thus 
it is unnecessary to emphasize details here, or to stress 
the more compelling facts of the campaign. 

A number of questions, however, require answers. 
One inevitably concerns the extent of involvement of 
alumni in the campaign itself, and another is the role of 
the Loyalty Fund, through which alumni and friends 
have for so long been giving essential support to Duke's 
annual operating budget. 

At the outset it should be abundantly clear, and to 
everyone, that the greatness of the "Fifth Decade" 
program is sufficient to challenge the best efforts of 
everyone who has an interest in Duke and a concern 
for what Duke does and represents — for what it seeks to 
accomplish in scholarship, research, and education, and 
for what it seeks to give, spiritually and materially, in 
terms of human service. There is no need to ignore that 
the program will require the strenuous effort of everyone 
who steps forth to take a hand in it. The magnitude of 
the goals, the scope of the University's ambition, the 
pressures of opportunity, and the intensity of the chal- 
lenge make the need for rather awesome effort totally 
apparent. If it were otherwise, the University's response 
to its environment and its mission would be inadequate, 
and certainly much less inspiring. 

This, however, should be noted: 

As time passes an increasing number of alumni and 
friends will become involved in direct and particular 
ways. But for the immediate present, and indeed 
throughout the "Fifth Decade" program, alumni and 
friends generally are being asked to concentrate upon 
making a significant advance in Annual Giving, to lift 
the Loyalty Fund to an entirely new level of usefulness

Four aspects of the educational and financial program to which the Uni- 
versity has committed itself are discussed here by Dr. Douglas M. Knight. 


George V. Allen, general campaign chairman, takes a close look at the 
goals and possibilities of success of the University's capital campaign. 


The appointment of six men to positions of leadership in the University's 
drive to raise $102,876,000 in three years was announced September 23. 


At ceremonies on September 23 ground was broken for the University's 
most urgently needed structure — a new addition to the Duke Library. 


Among plans revealed during the events on September 23 was this Master 
Campus Plan which provides for a coherent physical expansion at Duke. 


John M. Dozier, University business manager, asks whether Duke will be 
able to avoid the ugliness of expediency in new construction on campus. 


The Blue Devils took to the football field this year in new pants and 
promptly broke a five-game losing streak carried over from last year.

Says Provincial 

I was enormously impressed by your 
attention to the humanities in the May, 
1965, edition of the Register. 

It seems to me that the University 
is very provincial in its attitude to- 
ward students who have lived in other 
parts of the world and who have so 
much to give the University and their 
fellow students. I feel very strongly 
that there should be greater flexibility 
in the admissions division of the Col- 
lege in particular; that it should not 
be as closely bound to the require- 
ments which are made of U.S.A.- 
educated youngsters.

to Duke, and thus assure the Univer- 
sity of an annual income that will 
sustain expanded and intensified edu- 
cational programs made possible by 
new facilities and endowment. 

The Loyalty Fund is essential to the 
University's future, and also to its 
present. It must grow, and it can 
actually lead the way into the new 
era. A major part of the "Fifth 
Decade" goal, in fact, will be filled 
through Loyalty Fund annual giving 
for current operations. Thus a pro- 
gram begun by alumni 19 years ago, to 
give Duke the assurance of adequate 
operating income, is now also a key- 
stone of its future. 

The story of the "Fifth Decade" will 
unfold as the program progresses. 
Everyone will, and must, be asked to 
take a part. Many will be called upon 
to work in different, and perhaps in 
several, capacities. There will be a 
greater-than-ever need for close under- 
standing and association among the 
various sectors of the University com- 
munity. And this in itself will make 
Duke a greater institution and a source 
of greater satisfaction to those whose 
devotion it claims.

Alumni may now more fully participate in the intellectual life 
of the University by listening to tape recordings of major campus 
speakers. The recordings are available to both individuals and alumni 
groups without charge, and may be played on any standard tape 
recorder. Send requests to: Recordings, Department of Alumni Af- 
fairs, Duke University. Additional selections will be announced. 
Currently available are: 

• Dr. Douglas M. Knight, Bacca- 
laureate Sermon. Duke Chapel, 
June 6, 1965. Man's pursuit of hap- 
piness in the medium of time is Dr. 
Knight's topic. Using frequent ref- 
erences from literature and scrip- 
ture, he urges degree candidates to 
become masters rather than servants 
of time. Time: 30 minutes. B284. 

o Dr. Gordon N. Ray, Commence- 
ment Address, Indoor Stadium, 
June 7, 1965. A distinguished 
scholar and president of the Gug- 
genheim Foundation, Dr. Ray dis- 
cusses the critical issue of arts and 
humanities in an age of technology. 
What shall man become? How can 
the arts and humanties serve man? 
These questions, and current steps 
being taken at the federal level to 
strengthen these areas, are discussed. 
Time: 45 minutes. B281. 

• Vice President Hubert H. Hum- 
phrey, Indoor Stadium, April 24, 
1965. The Vice President queries: 
"What can we Americans ask of 
each other in 1965?" His remarks 
touch many issues of vital signifi- 
cance: Viet Nam, poverty, civil 
rights, education, and foreign policy. 
About 40 minutes. B254. 

• Dr. John Kenneth Galbraith, 
Page Auditorium, April 9, 1965. 
Author of The Affluent Society and 
former Ambassador to India, Dr. 

Galbraith delivers a far-ranging talk 
on modern foreign policy. He uses 
Viet Nam to illustrate the need for 
"practical accommodation" based on 
self-interest with Russia and China. 
The cold war theories of "impla- 
cable conflict" with the Communist 
bloc, he claims, have become out- 
moded. About 55 minutes. B243A 
& B. 

• Dr. Martin Luther King, Page 
Auditorium, November, 1964. Dr. 
King calls for a realistic appraisal 
of civil rights issues. Two false as- 
sumptions, he claims, stand in the 
way of integration: the idea that 
time can bring about change and 
the notion that legislation cannot 
solve the problem. About 1 hour. 
B224A & B. 

• Dr. Douglas M. Knight, UNC 
Commencement, June 7, 1965. 
Attacking the North Carolina 
speaker ban law, Dr. Knight charges 
that it could have adverse effects 
on both the education and economy 
of the state. (The law bans Com- 
munists or people who have pleaded 
the fifth amendment from speaking 
at state-supported institutions.) "The 
real issue," he says, "is the control 
of a great university." This re- 
cording also includes Governor Dan 
K. Moore's comments on the con- 
troversial law, which were delivered 
from the same platform. About 45 
minutes. B282.

One used to shudder when he 
thought simultaneously of the 
University's telephone service and the 
development campaign. New build- 
ings constructed from campaign pro- 
ceeds will require additional lines. In 
fact, it is estimated that 13,000 lines 
will be needed by 1975. The present 
system has 3,600 lines. And that 
system is too often characterized to- 
day by periods of silence whenever a 
receiver is lifted, by interminable de- 
lays in reaching an operator to call 
outside the University, and by equally 
interminable delays in trying to call 
into the University from outside. In 
other words, the telephone service has 
caused many a receiver to be slammed 
down in disgust. The thought of new 
buildings and additional lines, which 
will add considerably to the 1,100,000 
calls presently handled each month by 
the Duke system, would be frightening 
if the present service was not sched- 
uled for improvement. 

John M. Dozier, the University's 
business manager and human com- 
puter, says that "One major change 
which needs to be made with the con- 
tinued expansion is to provide direct 
inward dialing, thereby eliminating the 
excessive volume of calls now handled 
by the switchboard operation. The 
volume of calls through this board," 
he says, "has now reached such a 
level that long delays in making in- 


ward calls to the University from the 
outside, and in placing long distance 
calls from the University, are common- 

The funds for this major improve- 
ment, which will require additional 
lines and associated automatic equip- 
ment, have been made available, and 
the University's system should be 
operating on an improved basis by 
mid- 1966. The need for this improved 
service has long been recognized by 
the business office (and by everyone 
else on campus). Although improve- 
ments were made between 1959 and 
the present, these constituted an "at- 
tempt to catch up" with the Univer- 
sity's rapid physical expansion. The 
attempts were never completely suc- 
cessful — or so one would judge from 
listening to complaints about the na- 
ture of the current telephone service. 
The improved and expanded system 
scheduled to go into operation by 
mid-1966, however, should provide 
adequate service for the University's 
present facilities. In the meantime, the 
development campaign just launched 
by the University will result in further 
expansion of the physical plant over 
the next decade. The telephone sys- 
tem will have to accommodate this 
expansion, and the business office in- 
tends to see that it does. 

Thorough studies have already been 
made of "present facilities, the pro- 

jected future telephone requirements, 
and the possible alternative solutions 
to the University's communication 
problems." These studies, which con- 
stitute part of a master utilities plan 
being developed as a blueprint for fu- 
ture growth, were conducted with the 
cooperation of the General Telephone 
Company. They have already re- 
sulted in the major improvement 
scheduled for completion in mid-1966. 
They also resulted in a decision by 
the University to retain ownership of 
its privately owned system. General 
Telephone Company had offered to 
purchase and operate the system, 
which is closely tied to its lines. 

In addition to these more immediate 
recommendations, the studies proposed 
long-range plans calling for additional 
capital expenditures to meet the com- 
munication needs of an expanding 
University. These plans incorporate 
such features as telephones in dormi- 
tory rooms and direct distance dialing. 
The effectiveness of these plans, of 
course, is dependent upon whether 
funds are available. 

The problem of funding such im- 
provements emphasizes the fact that 
the more glamorous additions to the 
University, such as new buildings, cre- 
ate additional needs — not as glamor- 
ous, perhaps — which are essential to 
the effective functioning of the cam- 
pus. Once the glamorous as well as 

the more utilitarian additions have 
been made, they must be kept in opera- 
tion on an annual basis. The need, 
then, for continuing financial support 
is great. Hopefully, funds for both 
capital improvements and general op- 
erating costs will become available in 
all those areas of the University where 
the need is recognized. In the mean- 
time, in a utilitarian area which con- 
cerns everyone, the University eagerly 
awaits its improved telephone service. 
But years of conditioning, of silent 
lines or seemingly unmanned switch- 
boards, make the wait an extremely 
apprehensive one. 

A New Class 

The average College Board test 
scores of an incoming freshman class 
used to be announced, it seemed, with 
all the fanfare of Detroit introducing 
its new model automobiles. "Bigger 
and Better Than Ever." But the era 
of the soft-sell has now come about — 
at least for College Board averages. 
In order to allay the impression that 
high test scores are the primary pre- 
requisites for admission to Duke ( and 
they are not), it was decided that test 
averages should not figure prominently 
in news reports of the incoming class. 
Although Director of Undergraduate 
Admissions William L. Brinkley, Jr., 
did not publicly release the figures 
this year, he did say in the Chronicle 
that the averages "are so high they 
would frighten you." Then he added, 
"It would appear that this class is as 
well prepared in their secondary school 
education as any we have ever had." 

The class Mr. Brinkley referred to, 
the Class of 1969, was expected to 
be composed of 1,217 students coming 
from forty-two states and the District 
of Columbia, from two United States 
possessions and four foreign countries. 
The class was selected from among 
5,456 applicants, a 12 per cent in- 
crease over the number who applied 
for admission last year. 

Those students admitted were ex- 
pected to enroll as follows: Trinity 
College, 622; The Woman's College, 
380; College of Engineering, 133; and 
School of Nursing, 82. 

Included in the class are three Presi- 
dential Scholars; thirty-two National 

Is there really an operator there? 


HgFMerit Scholars, and six recipients of 
National Achievement Scholarship 
Prizes for Negro Students. The Uni- 
versity is also using $250,000 of its 
own to extend financial aid to 23 per 
cent of the entire class. 

Also in the Class of 1969 are forty- 
five former student body presidents, 
sixteen former senior class presidents, 
and 130 editors of either a high school 
newspaper or annual. It is, as Mr. 
Brinkley says, a well prepared class. 


Our problems are composed mainly 
of the students' problems, said a West 
Campus dean shortly before the Class 
of 1969 began arriving on September 
17. The incoming student, he felt, dis- 
covers that his own problems are cre- 
ated for the most part in learning to 
cope with a greater degree of freedom. 
He must also adjust to a highly com- 
petitive situation in both academic and 
extra-curricular activities. 

The freshman "finds that he has 
more freedom than he has ever had 
before," said the dean. Although he 
comes from a permissive society, he 
still has had more direct supervision 
than he will have at Duke. Of course, 
the fact that he has come from a per- 
missive society has not aided him any 
in developing a sense of self-discipline. 
He must develop this discipline in or- 
der to cope with his freedom. 

Although the vast majority of fresh- 
men adjust to the highly competitive 
atmosphere at Duke, there are some 
who panic, who become emotionally 
upset, or who just quit trying. Some 
of these students, the dean said, are 
under tremendous family pressures to 
obtain high grades. If the student 
obtained such grades in high school, 
then the family is likely to expect him 
to obtain the same grades at Duke 
without recognizing the fact that he is 
now competing against an entire class 
composed of students whose talents 
are equal or superior to his own. This 
situation contributes greatly to pres- 
sures on individual students. 

No one, of course, wants to see a 
student fail. The admissions office 
attempts to select students who can 
compete successfully. But no one in 
that office is infallible. Some students 
will have difficulty. When that hap- 
pens, the deans are there to help in 
any way they can. 

In One Word 

"I can sum it up in one word," said 
W. C. A. Bear, chief of the campus 
security force. "Parking." This was 
the main problem created for the cam- 
pus police by the arrival of 1,217 
freshmen, and the entire security force 
was on hand to deal with the problem 
from seven o'clock in the morning 
until five in the evening. The chief 

went on to explain that once the ve- 
hicles were parked it often took an 
unnecessarily long time to unload them 
and get them moving again. "Some 
parents bring their children in and 
then don't want to leave," he said. 
But other than parking and maintain- 
ing a flow of traffic while being im- 
peded by reluctant parents, the chief's 
problems were minor. "Of course," 
he said, "some people always get lost 
running all over the campus." Direc- 
tions, however, were always available 
from Y-men who returned early to the 
campus to aid the freshmen in their ad- 
justment to a new life. They "are a 
definite asset," said the chief. 

A Bus Stop 

Moving in the Class of 1969. 

There was consternation among 
some people when the machinery first 
appeared in the middle of the main 
quadrangle on West Campus. Al- 
though the lack of parking space is a 
critical problem, there have been 
enough lots built on campus to prompt 
the joke that sooner or later the busi- 
ness office would pave the main quad- 
rangle. Suddenly, it seemed as if that 
was what was happening. 

Eventually, though, reason emerged 
from what at first seemed to be mad- 
ness. In the past, vehicular traffic has 
moved freely around the quadrangle 
in front of the Chapel. Pedestrian 
traffic, of course, has always been 
heavy across this main part of the 
campus. The vehicles and pedestri- 
ans conflicted. Also, professors and 
students in classrooms facing the quad- 
rangle were disturbed by the odors 
and sounds of traffic — particularly 
since the sales increase in Honda 
motorcycles. Neither are the Duke 
Power Company's buses odorless and 
noiseless, and the number of these 
buses has increased since the Univer- 
sity now uses a shuttle system between 
campuses. The problems created by 
this vehicular traffic were obnoxious. 
The solution, fortunately, was tasteful. 

A "lip" was cut across the lower 
end of the quadrangle. Once access 
chains are erected, vehicular traffic 
will be able to proceed into the quad- 
rangle only a short distance. A new 
bus stop, which looks like a very large 
patio, has been built at the top of the 

There was consternation for awhile. 

lip. Twelve parking spaces to replace 
a number of those spaces which will 
no longer be available for visitors were 
also built: seven on one side of the 
lower end of the quadrangle and five 
on the other. A handsome tree was 
not sacrificed in order to have seven 
spaces on each side. 

Although some people assumed at 
first that the view of the Chapel from 
the traffic circle would be spoiled, the 
assumption, now that construction is 
almost complete, seems to have been 
in error. It will be a different view 
but not necessarily a bad one, for 
there seems to be a minimum of in- 
trusion by the parking spaces and ve- 

hicles using the lip. All in all, the 
solution seems to embody both utili- 
tarian and aesthetic purposes. As the 
University business manager points 
out in his article in this issue, these 
purposes have not always been served 
equally in construction at Duke.

Four Aspects of a Major Educational 
and Financial Program 


t an Academic Convocation on September 23, 
University President Douglas M. Knight an- 
nounced the formal launching of the largest fund- 
raising campaign in the University's history. Efforts will 
be made to raise $102,876,000 in capital funds during 
the next three years and $187,41 1,000 within ten years. 
Dr. Knight revealed that the University had already 
raised approximately $28,000,000 of the first goal. This 

Librarian Benjamin E. Powell listening. 

sum does not include, he said, some $18,800,000 which 
is anticipated from government grants and loans during 
the period of the campaign. "September 23, 1965," said 
Dr. Knight, "will go down in Duke's history, I believe, as 
a deeply significant date. For the past six years, we — 
students, faculty, trustees, and alumni — have been plan- 
ning for this day. Today is the day of action that justi- 
fies those plans." 


The University has now committed itself, said the 
President, to a program "which has four major aspects." 
The first of these aspects is the immediate capital 
campaign and its specific goals. Secondly, a Master 
Campus Plan has been developed which relates all the 
physical parts of the University to each other in a new 
and significant manner. Embodied in the third aspect 
of the program is the "sense of substantial progress 
already made" toward achieving immediate goals as well 
as increasing the general level of financial support of the 
University. Finally, the program involves a "coherent 
means ... of continuing to study and define our edu- 
cational purposes." Dr. Knight stated that the Univer- 
sity is now "proceeding in all these ways simultane- 

When the general goal of the capital campaign was 
first announced in March, said Dr. Knight, the Univer- 
sity had received commitments of "a little over 
$19,000,000." Since that time, and despite the fact that 






President Douglas M. Knight speaking at the Academic Convocation on September 23. 

the summer was spent largely in organizing the campaign 
leadership, the University has received an additional 
sum of approximately $9,000,000. The $28,000,000 
which is to be applied toward the three-year goal "is a 
healthy base from which to start,'* said Dr. Knight. It is 
not a base, however, "which we should be vain about." 
Although these figures "by themselves have no magic 
in them," said Dr. Knight, they are significant in that 
they indicate the magnitude of both the University's 
needs and capabilities. "Not only can we do the things 
which have been described in our plans for the next 
ten years, we are already doing them in good measure." 
Of course, said Dr. Knight, the exact order of project 
completion cannot be predicted, for needs will be 
constantly reviewed. But "you can expect things to 
happen rapidly and regularly," he said. 


The expectations embodied in the capital campaign 
"would have relatively little meaning," declared Dr. 
Knight, "without some coherent idea about the physical 
planning of the University." The tendency at Duke in 
the past has been to expand to the west. Now, however, 

the eastern and western ends of the campus will be 
brought together. Until recently the land in this area 
did not belong to the University. The Burlington In- 
dustries Foundation has agreed, though, to sell most of 
this property to Duke. With this purchase, "together 
with what we already own and are acquiring from other 
individual owners, we shall have an adequate base for 
the development of a third center of campus life and 
activity between those two which now absorb us so 
completely." Although the eastern and western ends of 
the campus will retain their own distinction, the inevi- 
table conflicts that have existed about where Duke is 
putting its primary emphasis will be overcome. "Our 
emphasis," declared Dr. Knight, "is on the whole Uni- 


"The support which has come to us and which we 
now enjoy is not sudden and therefore uncertain in its 
future," said the President. "It is the result of hard and 
constant work by many people." 

Dr. Knight paid "a particular tribute" to the board 
of trustees. "They have in the past few years," he said, 

ANALYSIS OF $102,876,000 GOAL 

if there were not available to us some constant way of 
exploring them, studying them, reshaping them as needs 
change, and giving them the constant review which any 
idea must have if it is to feed the life of a driving, grow- 
ing University." One avenue for this exploration and 
review has resulted from the "emergence of the Aca- 
demic Council as the true representative of the Univer- 
sity faculty." Growing from this emergence, said Dr. 
Knight, was the establishment of "a policy and planning 
committee which brings together representatives of the 
council and senior members of the administration of the 
University in a constant review ... of all our plans." 

Many of these plans were included in the "Fifth 
Decade," an exploratory document developed over a 
year ago which attempted to relate the intellectual and 
financial needs of the University to each other. The 
Academic Council voted last spring "to approve the 
basic recommendations of that document in preparation 
for this campaign." However, the council and adminis- 
tration recognized that the "Fifth Decade" did not 
"attempt to define in detail all that we would be doing." 
Therefore, eight faculty-administrative committees are 
being utilized "to review all the major ideas in that docu- 
ment in the light of the general principles which the 
Academic Council and the board of trustees have al- 
ready accepted." 

"assumed their proper place as an active policy-making 
group in many matters that deeply affect us. And they 
are taking the lead ... in defining the needs of the Uni- 
versity and assuming the responsibility for seeing that 
they are met. . . . Without a truly responsible board of 
trustees no university can hope to be a place of great 
stature. But," Dr. Knight added, "this kind of develop- 
ment would not be possible without an equally active 
faculty and . . . administration." 

In mentioning the increasing financial support being 
received by the University, Dr. Knight emphasized "that 
these increases ... do not come merely from the federal 
government. ... As a matter of fact," explained the 
President, "our federal support has held even this year 
while our private support increased by about $6,000,- 
000." However, "we cannot and we should not avoid 
federal support for many programs that are in the 
national interest. But we have no intention of relying 
on that source to do what in fact we must do as individ- 
uals and together." 


These present achievements and future hopes, said 
Dr. Knight, "might still be remote from the University 


In closing, Dr. Knight said that "we expect great 
distinction of ourselves as a university. We have talked 
about it so much that it has become a little threadbare," 
he said, "but we do honestly expect it. Although there 
is nothing immodest in that expectation, it will never 
come to pass if we think in terms of imitating what 
others have done or by following what they say they 
have found to be good." We will only find ourselves, 
said Dr. Knight, by accepting "fully and gratefully the 
fact that our roots are precisely here," by accepting "the 
fact that our origin is almost unique and that our oppor- 
tunity, our fantastic opportunity, is the direct result of 
where we are and what we are. Our growth in wisdom 
and stature will really come only if we have this under- 
standing of ourselves." 


Dr. Knight's convocation address brought to a close 
a day of activity which also included a ground-breaking 
ceremony for a $7,000,000 addition to the Library and 
an announcement of the capital campaign's leadership. 
These other events, as well as the unveiling of the Master 
Campus Plan, are reported in detail throughout the re- 
mainder of the magazine. 


The Capital Campaign: 

A Close Look 

by George V. Allen 
General Campaign Chairman 

In order to examine the University's recently an- 
nounced capital fund campaign — and it should be 
examined by all alumni and friends — I ask you to 
consider the following questions which are basic to any 
understanding of the campaign: 

Is a ten-year advancement program for $187,411,- 

000 for Duke University realistic? 

When the relatively small size of the Duke alumni 
body, the comparative youth of the institution as a uni- 
versity, and the general economic status of the area 
are all taken into consideration, this program qualifies 
as the most ambitious capital fund campaign yet un- 
dertaken by an American university (or any university) 
up to the present time. You may therefore ask if we 
have overreached ourselves. Please keep in mind, 
however, that this is an overall ten-year program. The 
level of giving to Duke has been increasing steadily 
during the last few years. Many institutions conduct- 
ing recent campaigns have been criticized for not setting 
their sights high enough. We do not wish to be criti- 
cized on this score. 

I am frank to admit, however, that when I first heard 
the figure $187,411,000 mentioned, I was slightly 
aghast. You may be also. But as the French say, 
"the appetite comes with eating." Or to alter Andrew 
Jackson's instructions at New Orleans, where he told 
his artillerymen to "elevate them sights a little lower," 

1 believe all of us who have been preparing for the 

Duke campaign during the past few months have learned 
to elevate our sights higher. 

I regard the ten-year goal and the immediate short- 
term goal of $102,876,000 to be ambitious but never- 
theless realistic; and I am willing to risk whatever 
reputation I have as a prophet by predicting that we 
can reach it and that we shall do so if we follow through 
with adequate determination and hard work. 

Do we have the necessary leadership? 

If we assume, for the sake of discussion, that the 
goal is within the potentials of the Duke community 
and its friends, we must next ask ourselves, whether we 
have available the kind of leadership required to make 
a great campaign successful. Adequate leadership 
means a great deal more than one or two men. For- 
tunately, as leaders of this institution we are privileged 
to have two men who are equal to those at the helm 
of any other institution in the United States. I refer 
to President Douglas M. Knight and Chairman of the 
Board of Trustees Wright Tisdale. It has been my 
pleasure to work with them closely in a dozen or more 
long meetings of the Trustee Committee for University 
Advancement during the past four months. But our 
good fortune goes further than that — and it must in 
order to accomplish a task of such magnitude. We are 
fortunate enough, as the football coach would say, to 
have strength in depth. Composing that strength are 
men who have shown remarkable ability, imagination, 


This article was given by Mr. Allen as a talk on September 23 to University officials, trustees, and campaign leaders. 

The Loyalty Fund and the Capital Campaign 

For eighteen years the Duke University Loyalty 
Fund has been an indispensable source of annual 
operating income for Duke and for each of its schools 
and colleges. It will continue in this role throughout 
the capital campaign. In fact, its role will become 
increasingly important. Although the annual giving 
program and capital campaign will not be merged, the 
Loyalty Fund is being relied upon to assist the capital 
campaign toward its goal by helping to meet a require- 
ment for $12,300,000 in additional operating funds. 
With this in mind, the Duke University National 

Council voted to raise the Loyalty Fund toward a 
$1,000,000 goal to be reached in three stages by 
1967-68. The 1965-66 goal will be $675,000 and 
the 1966-67 goal $800,000. 

The importance of the Loyalty Fund was empha- 
sized recently by President Douglas M. Knight when 
he said "that one of the University's great needs is 
for continuing and growing annual support. I speak 
particularly of the sort of unrestricted and immediately 
expendable funds provided by alumni, parents of stu- 
dents, and other friends through the Loyalty Fund." 

soundness of judgment, and enthusiasm in planning this 
program for the University's development. These 
men include the following members of the Trustee 
Committee for Institutional Advancement: The Rev- 
erend Charles P. Bowles '28, am '31, bd '32; Thomas 
A. Finch, Jr.; George M. Ivey, St., '20; Edwin 
L. Jones, St., '12; Marshall I. Pickens '25, am '26; 
Robert H. Pinnix '24; Henry E. Rauch; Thomas F. 
Southgate, Jr., '37; Charles B. Wade, Jr., '38; Charles 
S. Rhyne '34, l '37, lld '58; Wright Tisdale, ex officio. 
This committee is responsible for policies and plans for 
the financial development of the University. 

However, the committee that will provide the active 
direction and management of the $102,876,000 cam- 
paign is the Campaign Operations Committee. Its 
chairman is Clifford W. Perry '36, treasurer of the 
Hanes Corporation in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. 
Members of this committee who will chair special com- 
mittees themselves are: 

Edwin L. Jones, Sr., chairman of the Major 
Gifts Committee. His committee will seek to 
raise gifts of $100,000 or more during the 

Thomas A. Finch, Jr., is chairman of the Spe- 
cial Gifts Committee, which will seek gifts 
ranging from $10,000 to $100,000. 
Charles B. Wade, Jr., is chairman of the Key 
Gifts Committee, which will seek gifts ranging 
from $1,000 to $10,000. 

The National Sponsoring Committee, another im- 
portant group, is composed of prominent educators, 
businessmen, church leaders, professional men and 
women, and government officials who endorse and en- 
thusiastically support the University in this campaign. 
The man who has accepted chairmanship of this com- 
mittee is Dr. James A. Killian, Jr., chairman of the 
Corporation of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 

This leader in the advancement of science education is 
a Duke alumnus, attending here through 1925. He 
also received an honorary degree from Duke in 1949. 

The dedication and loyalty of the men I have men- 
tioned, as well as that of the hundreds of others through- 
out the country who are responding to Duke's invita- 
tion to serve, have been inspiring. 

As an indication of this dedicated spirit, I may tell 
you that after the campaign was announced in June, 
the first two members of the board of trustees who came 
forward without solicitation to indicate their personal 
pledges were not Duke alumni, although they consider 
themselves, and are considered, full and devoted mem- 
bers of our family. 

I should also mention the tireless and efficient work 
of Vice President for Institutional Advancement Frank 
Ashmore and his able staff. On their output will 
depend a great deal of the success of the campaign. 

Even granted that the goal is realistic and the 
leadership adequate, a further question must be asked: 
Is the timing right? 

Victor Hugo pointed out a century ago that nothing 
is so powerful as an idea that meets its time. The con- 
verse is also true. If the time is not right, as great an 
idea as Woodrow Wilson's League of Nations is doomed 
to failure. We must, therefore, consider in utmost 
seriousness whether the time is yet ripe for Duke Uni- 
versity to launch a capital fund campaign of this mag- 
nitude. I have become deeply convinced that it is. 

The time is precisely right. Almost forty years 
ago Mr. Duke signed the indenture which created Duke 
University. The expansion required to change Trinity 
College into an important university was enormous. 
A new campus had to be constructed, new faculties 
had to be recruited for several new schools, curricula 
expanded, libraries built and supplied, a great hospital 
complex constructed, and many other facilities created 
from scratch. Duke had to establish a reputation 


among the significant institutions of higher learning in 
the nation. This all took time. 

The original goal has now been achieved on a 
reasonably satisfactory basis. Duke is today a good 
school — even a great school. It is often referred to, 
perhaps with some immodesty when uttered by mem- 
bers of the Duke community, as the outstanding private 
educational institution in the South. 

But we must do more. The South ought to be the 
location of at least one of the greatest private universi- 
ties anywhere. Not only does the South need such an 
institution — the nation needs it. Humanity needs it. 

The South has a tradition of scholarship, govern- 
ment, and literature. At the founding of this nation, 
the South and New England were the centers of learn- 
ing. New England has held the pace, but the South 
has fallen back. No one is holding us. We have the 
opportunity to achieve universally recognized greatness 
if we but seize it. In fact, we have the good wishes 
and support of individuals who have no formal con- 
nection with Duke. Many such people will be on our 
National Sponsoring Committee. And although the 
great foundations have no inherent interest in Duke 
they are nevertheless anxious for the South to resume 
its rightful place in educational leadership. A half- 
dozen private southern institutions have the possibility 
of achieving this goal of greatness. I hope several will. 
Today, when the eyes of the nation are on the South, 
the times cry out, right now, for at least one such 
institution to make the breakthrough. But no southern 
institution has a better platform from which to launch 
the effort than Duke. The breakthrough is bound to 
come soon — somewhere. I am confident that it will 
be spearheaded by the institution to which all of us 
are so deeply attached. 

The campaign was announced in June. Has it 
already begun to show any progress? 

It has. We can already count almost $28,000,000 
towards the goal. And this does not include any major 
foundation support. Such support will depend on what 
we ourselves are able to do. If we show a matching 
capacity, we are confident that substantial foundation 
support will be forthcoming. 

Is Duke's further expansion already on the way? 

Yes. It is astonishing to realize that some $17,- 
000,000 worth of new buildings are presently under 
construction or contracted for at Duke. This is per- 
haps more physical plant, in itself, than the total value 
of the average collegiate institution in the United States. 

But werent these buildings already planned some 
time ago? As Vice President Barkley's constituent 
used to ask him: "What have you done recently?" 

We have just broken ground for a $7,000,000 addi- 
tion to the most vital center of any university — the 


Library. As you have heard, this addition will more 
than double the capacity of a Library which is already 
equal to any in the South. Here again, however, 
"equal to any in the South" is not good enough. The 
very comparison itself is pejorative and condescending. 

I join my southern associates who say, "What's 
good enough for the South is good enough for me"; 
but I want this good to be equal to the best, and there 
is every reason why it should be. 

In academic circles the most important considera- 
tion in measuring any institution is the size, arrange- 
ment, and quality of its library and its research facilities. 
Those who have planned this great effort at Duke have 
begun at precisely the right spot. 

The very day we broke ground for our Library 
addition a cornerstone was also laid for the construc- 
tion of an important new I.B.M. facility in the Re- 
search Triangle. Is there a relationship between these 
two events? 

There is a very close and positive relationship. 
I.B.M. did not choose the Research Triangle because 
of the beautiful pine trees in that very pleasant setting. 
There are many beautiful acres of pines throughout 
the South and throughout the nation. I.B.M. chose 
this location because of people — because of the area's 
nearness to three great universities, because of the 
scientific scholars available, and because of the whole- 
some atmosphere created by the numbers of refined 
and intelligent people who reside in these educational 
communities. The only difference between the loca- 
tion chosen by I.B.M. and a hundred other available 
sites throughout the United States was its academic 
surroundings. Duke's development is most intimately 
connected with the development of the area in which 
it is situated, and vice versa. 

We are said to be in the electronics era. The last 
thirty years have witnessed an electronics explosion — 
a breathtaking development which followed the inven- 
tion of the vacuum tube and the transistor. The center 
of this amazing industrial development has been within 
a radius of thirty miles of the city of Boston. It was 
attracted there almost solely because Harvard and the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology were located in 
the area. If Duke and its sister institutions in the Raleigh- 
Durham-Chapel Hill area achieve the role we are now 
planning for them, this part of the nation, which has 
a vastly superior advantage over Boston in climate, can 
achieve similar advancements during the generation 

And so, I ask a final question. How can anyone, 
realizing this potential, fail to be excited by the oppor- 
tunity open to us? The task will be hard, but the re- 
wards immeasurable for our children, and for our chil- 
dren's children. 







The Campaign Leaders 

The success of the University's development cam- 
paign depends largely on the quality of the 
campaign's leadership. As President Douglas M. 
Knight pointed out at the Academic Convocation, the 
past summer was spent "very largely in organizing a 
group of unusually able and devoted friends of Duke to 
make our future possible." The following men form 
the nucleus of this group. 

Dr. James R. Killian, Jr., chairman of the Corporation 
of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is an 
alumnus of Trinity College. He became chairman at 
M.I.T. in 1959 after ten years as president of the insti- 
tute. A recognized leader in the national advancement 
of science and engineering, he developed at M.I.T. 
the concept of a "university polarized around science." 
As chairman of the National Sponsoring Committee, 
Dr. Killian leads a distinguished group of educators, 
corporation heads, professional men and women, church 
leaders, and government officials who endorse the Uni- 
versity's program. 

George V. Allen, former career diplomat and director 
of the United States Information Agency, was ambassa- 
dor to four countries before becoming president of the 
American Tobacco Institute in 1960. One of sixteen 
persons selected to hold the rank of Career Ambassa- 
dor, Mr. Allen was the nation's youngest ambassador 
abroad when President Truman appointed him to Iran 
in 1946 at the age of 42. As general chairman, Mr. 
Allen heads the Trustee Committee for Institutional 
Advancement, which is responsible for policies and 
plans for the financial development of Duke. 
Clifford W. Perry, senior vice president of Hanes Ho- 
siery Mills in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, is cur- 

rently serving the University in two leadership posi- 
tions. In addition to chairing the Campaign Opera- 
tions Committee, he is also president of the General 
Alumni Association. In 1963-64 he was chairman of 
the Duke University National Council. Two of his 
three children are now Duke students. The Operations 
Committee provides active direction and management 
of the campaign. 

Edwin L. Jones, Sr., chairman of the J. A. Jones Con- 
struction Company of Charlotte, North Carolina, is a 
1912 graduate of Trinity College and a member of the 
board of trustees. He has long been active in Method- 
ist Church work in North Carolina, and now chairs 
several church organizations throughout the state and 
the Southeast. Mr. Jones also is a director of the 
North Carolina Research Triangle. The Major Gifts 
Committee will seek approximately 50 gifts of $100,000 
and above in the campaign. 

Thomas A. Finch, Jr., president of Thomas ville Furni- 
ture Industries, Inc., is a trustee of the University. A 
past president of the Southern Furniture Manufacturers 
Association, he was named "Furniture Man of the 
Year" in 1963. Mr. Finch is a graduate of Princeton 
University. The Special Gifts Committee, which he 
heads, will seek about 275 gifts ranging from $10,000 
to $100,000 during the campaign. 
Charles B. Wade, Jr., vice president of the R. J. 
Reynolds Tobacco Company, is a 1938 graduate of 
Duke and a trustee of the University. He is also a 
directing trustee of Salem College and a former mem- 
ber of the North Carolina Board of Conservation and 
Development. The Key Gifts Committee will seek 
approximately 1,000 gifts ranging from $1,000 to 
$10,000 during the campaign.

Our Most 
Urgent Need 

A Library Addition Is Underway 

With a bulldozer momentarily silent as it sat 
in a large area being excavated on one side 
of the speakers' platform, it was not difficult 
for one to see that the ground had already been broken 
for a $7,000,000 Library addition. President Douglas 
M. Knight, as candid as he usually is, acknowledged 
the presence of the bulldozer as he spoke to guests and 
spectators at the ground-breaking ceremonies on Sep- 
tember 23. Although he admitted the manufactured 
quality of any ground-breaking ceremony, Dr. Knight 
emphasized that the symbolism of the event was more 

important than the event itself. At Duke the event 
symbolized the beginning of a major step forward by 
the University in an attempt to become in its own way 
one of the nation's outstanding educational institutions. 
It symbolized, too, the University's recognition of the 
fact that a strong library is essential to the attainment 
of this goal. 

University Librarian Benjamin E. Powell, who also 
spoke at the ceremony, pointed out that "Vast collec- 
tions and massive buildings are not ends in themselves, 
but means for serving teaching and research." In addi-

Dr. Knight was as candid as usual.

Dr. Knight points out the spot 

to Mrs. Semans, Mr. Sherrill, and Dr. Mumford. 

tion to housing a largei number of books, the new Li- 
brary facilities, he said, will accommodate an increasing 
student body and faculty as well as a library staff needed 
to make books and journals accessible. The "Fifth 
Decade," a study presenting a broad outline of the 
University's goals, echoes Dr. Powell's comments when 
it states that "The number of graduate students [at 
Duke] is increasing rapidly, the faculty has increased 
more than a third in the last decade, and the expanding 
body of knowledge is increasing at a pace far more 
rapid than ever before. An outstanding Library is the 
most urgent physical need of the University." 

The present Library has adequate space for 850,000 
volumes and 900 readers. Enrollment at the Univer- 
sity, however, is now 6,533 and there are over 1,716,000 
books and 4,000,000 manuscripts in the Library. Many 
items have had to be stored and are not easily made 
available to anyone requesting them. The need for 
additional space is obvious now and has been for a long 
time. Hopefully, when the addition is completed in 1968, 
the Library's needs will be met for at least the next two 

The six-level addition, which will be constructed 
behind the existing structure, will more than double 
the amount of floor space available in the Library today. 
Although the building will harmonize with its surround- 
ings, it will be built in a "modified Gothic" style devoid 
of stone carvings and bay or dormer windows. Ex- 
terior construction will be of Duke stone with limestone 

After Dr. Richard L. Watson, Jr., chairman of the 
Academic Council and professor of history, had outlined 
the Library's development from its earliest beginnings 
at Trinity College, the physical labor involved in the 
ceremony began. It was a hot day, and the heat was 
made even worse by the fact that the ceremony was 
being held on what was left of the asphalt parking lot 
behind the Library. But four blue and white shovels 
were ably wielded by five ground-breakers in a soft 
area of earth to one side of the asphalt paving. Doing 
the digging were: Mary Duke Biddle Semans (Mrs. 
James H.) '39, a trustee of the University and The 
Duke Endowment; Frank O. Sherrill, chairman of the 
Building and Grounds Committee of the University 
board of trustees; Harry L. Dalton '16, lhd '65, chair- 
man of the Friends of the Library; L. Quincy Mumford 
'25, am '28, littd '57, chairman of the Library Board 
of Visitors and librarian of congress; and Miss Susan 
Cunningham, president of the Woman's Student Gov- 
ernment Association. 

Once the shoveling was done, President Knight 
turned to the bulldozer and said, "Now we'll leave the 
job to the professionals."

Creating a Coherent Physical Pattern for Duke 

When he addressed the audience at the Aca- 
demic Convocation on September 23, Presi- 
dent Douglas M. Knight defined the "classic 
difficulty of the American University today" as "a lack 
of space . . . and a truly uncoordinated placing of 
buildings." Duke, of course, is endowed with a pleth- 
ora of space — approximately 7,000 acres of it. "Un- 
til now," said Dr. Knight, "that space has seemed to 
beckon us to the west. ... Its very presence has em- 
phasized the separation between the two ends of the 
Duke campus." On September 23, however, Dr. 
Knight announced the completion of a preliminary 
Master Campus Plan, "a plan and concept of the physi- 
cal University conceived as a whole, one which relates 
the parts of the University to one another in a truly sig- 
nificant and exciting way." The University is com- 
mitted, then, to the development of the area between 
the eastern and western ends of the campus. 

The disclosure of the new plan occasioned the an- 
nouncement that the Burlington Industries Foundation 
has agreed to sell the University 153 parcels of land 
and buildings located between East and West. "Un- 
til now," said President Knight, "the property along 
Campus Drive which relates the two ends of the Duke 
campus has belonged in small part to the University." 
Now, however, "we have been able ... to plan toward 

the acquisition at one time of the greater proportion of 
that property. . . . Together with what we already own 
and are acquiring from individual owners, we shall 
have an adequate base for the development of a third 
center of campus life and activity between those two 
which now absorb us so completely." Such projects as 
a new engineering complex, an adequate graduate cen- 
ter, and a University center "can be related most closely 
to all the University if they are located in this area 
which is now available to us. . . . At the very least," 
said Dr. Knight, "we shall be creating a coherent pat- 
tern for the University; and we shall be able to keep 
the integrity and the distinction of both the eastern and 
western ends of the campus while we overcome the 
inevitable conflicts that have existed about whether we 
are putting our primary emphasis here or there. Our 
emphasis is on the whole University." 

The plan resulted from several years of study by the 
Houston firm of Caudill, Rowlett, and Scott in conjunc- 
tion with many members of the faculty and staff as well 
as the Building and Grounds Committee of the Uni- 
versity board of trustees. It should be emphasized 
that the map on the following pages is only preliminary 
as far as the exact location of specific buildings is con- 
cerned. The concept embodied in the plan, however, 
is one to which the University is committed.

Can Duke Avoid the Ugliness 
of Expediency in New Construction 

by John M. Dozier 
University Business Manager 

What is it, this "campus googolplex"? It is 
the astronomical number of square feet of 
building space which American higher edu- 
cation will attempt to build in the decade ahead. 
Actually, the term "googolplex" is a mathematical term 
devised by Dr. Edward Kasner, an American mathe- 
matician. It is a quite proper word which appears 
in any modern dictionary, and it means 10 100 . It is a 
number just about large enough to accommodate the 
largest numbers now used in physics or astronomy. 
Just as the explosions in physics require googols of 
zeros to define numbers, so indeed do the explosions 


in world population require googols to describe the 
amount of building area which will be required to house 
an adequate educational effort for such a population. 

Let us put it another way. By 1975 American col- 
leges and universities must be prepared to accommo- 
date an estimated 8,500,000 students — an increase of 
4,500,000 over the present enrollment. Between now 
and 1975 these same colleges must attempt to build 
new physical facilities equal to twice all the campus 
facilities built in the 300 years since Harvard was 
founded. Finally, put still another way, new buildings 
and renovations of old ones must be completed at an 

annual rate of $1,900,000,000 to meet on a minimum 
oasis the needs of college students in the decade ahead. 
Duke University, as one of the nation's major uni- 
versities, is inescapably caught up in this problem of 
growth. It will probably grow at a rate never dreamed 
of by its founders nor by its early administrative heads. 
The goals of the University's Fifth Decade capital 
gifts campaign embody projections of more than 
$100,000,000 in new construction during the next ten 
years. This construction will approximately double 
the value of the University's physical plant. Such pro- 
jections are a reflection of the planned enrollment ex- 
pansion and the anticipated program growth at Duke. 
The Fifth Decade program provides a realistic plan 
for the future if the University is to be a vital part of 
higher education in the United States. 

Like all institutions of higher education, Duke started 
too late to expand its physical facilities in order to be 
ready for the population explosion. When the de- 
pression caused student enrollments to sag, it was diffi- 
cult to get building programs underway. By 1950 
it was obvious to demographers that a flood of students 
would inundate the colleges in the sixties and seventies. 
At that time Duke stirred; but the institution did not 
really awaken to its building needs until about 1960. 
Prior to this date projects were modest and generally 
undertaken in an orderly, one-at-a-time sequence. From 
1930 until 1960 a total of twenty-three building projects 
totaling $25,731,000 in value were completed. Since 
1960, thirty-four projects with a value of $17,944,000 
have been completed. Currently, six projects valued 
at $16,974,000 are under construction, and thirteen 
additional projects with an estimated value of $20,- 
599,000 are now in active planning. Prior to 1959 
the University employed one small architectural firm 
(two members only). Now commissions have been 
given to ten able architectural firms. Seven of these 
firms are from North Carolina and three from outside 
the state. 

Prior to 1960 no staff architect had been hired. Now 
two architects are full-time staff members as is an 
interior designer and two construction inspectors. 
Authorization has been given to employ an additional 
architect and a mechanical engineer to work with new 
construction. In the thirty years prior to 1960 new 
construction was supervised through the maintenance 
and operations division. This arrangement worked 
well when the pace was slower and the physical plant 
less complicated. Today, however, a burgeoning rate 
of construction and increasingly complex physical plant 
have made it necessary to turn over the planning and 
supervision of new construction to the newly formed 
architectural section of the business division. This 
transition is being achieved. 

How should Duke go about the task of meeting a 
construction crisis? What should be our way of doing 
business to achieve the most useful and satisfying physi- 
cal plant possible for the dollars we will spend? Are 
there guide-lines for colleges in general which will be 
of use? Let us see. 

From the provocative report "Bricks and Mortar- 
boards" issued by Education Facilities Laboratory, the 
following excerpts are taken: 

Colleges are as plural as the American culture. 
One may be the greatest repository of culture 
in the Western World. Another, just as pre- 
cious to an open society, may be a couple of 
hundred students and their teachers, held to- 
gether by missionary zeal and a sense of im- 
pending bankruptcy. 

. . . unless there is better planning by the edu- 
cators and a greater financial commitment by 
society, there is danger that the needed facilities 
will be provided in a series of crash programs. 
Expediency rather than quality will be the by- 
word. And our campuses will be crowded 
with misplaced academic slums, educationally 
self-defeating and a drain both educationally 
and economically on future generations. 

There appear, then, to be two principles which are 
paramount to the solution of the complex problems 
facing colleges and universities, including Duke, in 
expanding their physical facilities. First, each institu- 
tion has unique qualities which should be recognized 
and considered in planning campus construction. Sec- 
ond, institutions of higher learning must do a sound 
planning job both for educational and research pro- 
grams and for aesthetically pleasing and functionally 
efficient buildings if educational goals are to be achieved. 

Duke has on occasion been guilty of overlooking 
one or both of these principles in creating campus 
building additions. In 1961 a master planning effort 
to develop a concept for campus expansion was begun. 
This effort included both architectural and utilities 
planning. Even earlier, long-range educational plan- 
ning was begun; and this effort has recently been cli- 
maxed with the writing of the "Fifth Decade," an 
extensive exploration of the University's goals, and with 
the announcement of a bold fund-raising program. The 
unique features of Duke, both as a University and as a 
physical plant, have been delineated in a design study 
and in the first phase of a Master Campus Plan report. 
The general pattern of educational growth for the 
decade ahead is available in the "Fifth Decade" and 
in materials prepared in its support.

Architect's drawing of the new Chemistry Building. 

In developing a way of achieving Duke's building 
goals, and thereby contributing to the attainment 
of its educational goals, an organizational structure 
has been created which should work satisfactorily. The 
Building and Grounds Committee of the board of 
trustees has the authority and the responsibility to 
site all buildings, develop and approve all master plans, 
commission all architects, approve all building designs, 
and in general create the physical environment that is 
Duke University. Quite obviously the business divi- 
sion, headed by its vice president, is the staff arm of 
the University which is on the firing line in dealing with 
architects, builders, faculty, community leaders, and 
others interested in or concerned with construction. 
The Executive Committee of the trustees, working with 
and through the President and the vice president for 
business and finance, is responsible for the financing 
of all construction. The business manager, the Uni- 
versity architect, and an assistant administrative direc- 
tor of the medical center coordinate and direct the 
planning and construction phases of the program. The 
Educational Facilities Committee, a faculty and admin- 
istrative group, serves as a communications link and 
review board for pre-architectural program develop- 
ment and preliminarv plan review. 

If Duke could slow the pace of building while con- 
tinuing to develop a staff to cope with the many plan- 
ning and construction problems it now faces, no doubt 
■costs could be more easily controlled and fewer mis- 
takes would occur. However, Duke cannot slow down 
if it is to meet the challenge of the decade ahead. The 


problem, then, is to find a way to develop sound plans 
and build outstanding structures at an acceptable cost. 
From the time a pre-architectural program is developed 
until a building is accepted, the business office deals 
with a variety of situations. Decisions must be made 
based upon conflicting evidence and pressures. Time 
schedules often require decisions before all of the evi- 
dence is in. The availability of federal funds changes 
and creates pressures to speed up planning and con- 
struction schedules. The complex pattern of pressures 
which has evolved creates an aura of urgency for the 
administrators of colleges and universities. But the 
sense of emergency must not foster expedient make- 
shifts to the detriment of quality and grace and ultimate 

Questions have been raised about construction 
costs and building concepts at Duke. Duke, 
like all colleges and universities, is having more 
and more difficulty in obtaining competitive bids 
and keeping bid prices in line with projected budgets. 
In order for the reader to understand the current con- 
cepts used in the University's building program, a 
number of the key factors and knottiest problems are 
herewith outlined: 

Architectural Selection: The University wishes to 
use about ten different architectural firms. In doing 
so, competition is created, sufficient manpower is ob- 
tained to meet tight planning schedules, and a variety 
of ideas are brought to the attention of the institution. 
The majority of the architects used are from North 

Carolina, but several nationally prominent firms have 
also been employed. In general, the architects used 
have been satisfactory. More difficulty has been en- 
countered in procuring good engineering design for 
mechanical systems. 

Design Criteria: A design study has been completed 
and approved to provide a philosophy and practical 
guide-lines for future construction at Duke. Duke has 
a distinguished campus, although there are some notable 
individual building exceptions. Aesthetic considera- 
tions sometimes escalate costs, but university construc- 
tion is not commercial construction and Duke has been 
willing to pay a reasonable premium for good design. 
By simplifying design, using cheaper exterior materials 
and less adequate mechanical systems, costs could easily 
be reduced. It is felt that such changes, unless care- 
fully considered, will create buildings of an unaccept- 
able quality. 

Campus Unity and Function: Individual buildings 
must be planned with consideration for the importance 
of campus unity and total function. Planners must look 
beyond architectural and technical details. The cam- 
pus must provide an environment that favors learning 
and understanding and intellectual interchange. In 
order to achieve overall order and unity, expensive sites 
must sometimes be used and other possible cost savings 

Cost Control: Every effort to make structural and 
mechanical systems adequate but not elaborate should 
be made. In recent months controls have been diffi- 
cult to achieve for many reasons not within the possible 
control of the University. North Carolina has experi- 
enced a construction cost increase of about 25 per cent 
during the past year, created primarily by a shortage 
of competent construction workers and a jump in wage 
rates. Union activity has increased, and more and 
more of Duke's work is subject to the regulations of 
the Davis-Bacon Act. 

Specifications and Construction Standards: Tighter 
specifications, more careful inspection, and high con- 
struction standards have tended to make costs for Duke 
construction high. In general, however, the Univer- 
sity must have carefully prepared, well written specifi- 
cations to control the quality of construction. Duke's 
construction standards are admittedly high — sometimes 
too high. It should be noted, however, that Duke's an- 
nual maintenance and operations costs are relatively 
lower than typical costs for colleges and universities. 
A comparison with fourteen other institutions shows 
that the mean expenditure for the other institutions was 
6.6 per cent of total expenditures while Duke's was only 
3.8 per cent. The quality of the physical plant is in 
part responsible for this annual savings. 

Single vs. Separate Contracts: For nearly two years 

the Building and Grounds Committee has debated the 
Single vs. Separate Contract concept of building. Forty- 
three states use the single contract method for public 
work while North Carolina uses separate contracts. 
General contractors urge a single contract, promising 
better supervision, better coordination, and lower costs. 
Mechanical contractors urge separate contracts, promis- 
ing a better quality of work and better prices with no 
coordination problems. Duke has followed the North 
Carolina pattern of separate contracts with three ex- 
ceptions in the past three years. The University archi- 
tect wishes to use the single contract; the business office 
sees little difference between the two systems in con- 
struction problems, administrative work load, and in- 
spection responsibilities. The business office does feel, 
however, that separate contracts produce somewhat 
better prices. 

Innovations and Change: Duke has recently made 
several decisions which have resulted in substantial 
changes in its pattern of construction. The first of these 
was the decision to use stone-faced panels for exterior 
wall construction. This change was accepted with re- 
luctance by some contractors, but finally was bid suc- 
cessfully on a major job with a major cost savings. 
Another big decision was that of making the campus 
an all-electric installation. The first bids received after 
this decision went against the usual experience of other 
bidders in that the electric heating system was bid at 
a higher figure than a steam system. This appears to 
be resistance to change. Even so, other innovations 
will be tried in the future. 

There are other details of planning and construc- 
tion which could be reviewed. Certainly more 
carefully delineated programs for architects, more 
carefully developed budgets, and crisper decisions would 
help. These and other matters can be debated, but in 
the main the business staff and the staff of the Uni- 
versity architect's office understand the philosophies and 
practical considerations which cause costs and tempers 
to rise and which create delays in construction. If the 
Building and Grounds Committee wishes to alter poli- 
cies controlling the planning and building of new 
buildings at Duke, it can do so. It is the hope of the 
business manager and his staff, however, that the Duke 
campus, so nobly begun, will continue to reflect under- 
standing of the present, vision of the future, and an 
awareness that the essential purpose of the campus is 
the cultivation of the life of the mind. 

John M. Dozier is a member of the Class of 1941. He 
joined the administrative staff in 1948 and assumed his 
present duties in 1961. 






The luncheon for alumni parents of 
entering freshmen was a distinct 
surprise to some people. By lunch- 
time on September 17, parents who 
had brought their sons and daughters 
to campus were already accustomed to 
opening their pocketbooks. The re- 
sponse at the end of any line seemed 
almost Pavlovian: "How much?" So 
some people were pleasantly surprised 
when they went through the cafeteria 
line and discovered that they were be- 
ing treated to a free lunch by the 
alumni department. "What a change," 
said one alumnus. 

Approximately 175 parents attended 
the luncheon. Some alumni returned 
with their children from as faraway 
as Oregon, Texas, and Michigan. As 
might be expected, classes with the 
most representation were those from 
1934 to 1944. 


A few campus cynics snickered 
when they learned of an alumni meet- 
ing scheduled in Marshville, North 
Carolina. "Marshville!?" But that 
hamlet astride the line between Anson 
(Wadesboro) and Union (Monroe) 
counties provided the setting for what 
might be considered one of the year's 
most successful alumni meetings. 

"We often forget about the smaller 
places in our rush to reach large num- 

bers," Dr. Frank T. de Vyver remarked 
on the trip down. "Many of our most 
interested and loyal friends live out- 
side the large metropolitan areas." 

Interested and loyal they were. 
About forty alumni, almost half of 
all alumni in the two-county area, 
turned out to hear Dr. de Vyver at 
the Palomino Restaurant in Marshville. 
By contrast, many of the large metro- 
politan associations do well indeed 
with a 10 per cent turnout. 

Spirit at the gathering was hearty 
and convivial. The Reverend Thomas 
G. Highfill '30, bd '33, who recently 
moved to Anson County after many 
years as pastor of the Methodist 
Church on the Cherokee Indian Res- 
ervation, contributed an infectious 
laugh which helped shorten a slight 
delay in serving dinner. He also gave 
the benediction, which was followed 
by a robust rendition of the Duke 
"Fight Song," ably led by a deep bari- 
tone. All arrangements for the meet- 
ing were made by Dr. Francis B. Lee 
'39, a surgeon and president of the 
Union-Anson Association. 

Those attending showed a lively in- 
terest in Dr. de Vyver's after-dinner 
talk. Vann V. Secrest, Sr., '16, who 
has been a staunch supporter of Duke 
through almost a half-century, was 
seen taking notes as Dr. de Vyver dis- 
cussed the faculty, students, and facili- 
ties at the University. 

Spirited questions followed the talk, 

and a particularly interesting exchange 
developed with C. Franklin Griffin 
l '50, who is a state senator repre- 
senting four North Carolina counties 
and a trustee of UNC at Charlotte. 
Both sparred good naturedly, and Dr. 
de Vyver, down to his shirt sleeves in 
the overheated room, apparently rel- 
ished the opportunity to speak can- 
didly with Mr. Griffin and the other 

After the meeting Dr. de Vyver was 
stopped by an elderly alumna who 
clutched his hand and whispered, 
"You're the kind we like to hear. 
Thank you for coming." 

Out in the car, as Dr. de Vyver 
fired-up his characteristic cigar, he 
pronounced his judgment of the eve- 
ning. "I enjoyed that meeting. They're 
good people." So they were — in 
Marshville, North Carolina. 

Not Necessarily 

At almost any meeting of any 
alumni group, some person says, "I 
couldn't get into Duke today." The 
statement is usually made with a cer- 
tain amount of pride, amazement, and 
perhaps with an I-don't-really-mean-it 
sense of humor. Well, Director of 
Undergraduate Admissions William L. 
Brinkley, Jr., has good news for the 
older generation. Such a statement, 
he says, is not true per se. 


It is true, however, that better 
teaching and an improved curriculum 
in the high schools produce students 
today who are better prepared for col- 
lege. Assuming that the alumnus was 
once a good student, and assuming that 
the same preparation was available to 
him as is available to today's student, 
then he might very well be able to 
qualify for admission to Duke. Of 
course, the competition is more keen 
today. More top students are applying. 

After considering all factors, how- 
ever, Mr. Brinkley stuck to his origi- 
nal statement: it is not necessarily true 
that an alumnus would find himself 
on the outside looking in. 

Three Clans 

The twenty-seven entering freshmen 
were anxious, almost embarrassed; the 
upperclassmen were poised but a little 
overconfident; the alumni were cu- 
rious — "What kind of a person can get 
into Duke these days?" Like three 
clans, the groups clustered around the 
backyard of Dottie ('54, rn '54) and 
Lloyd ('53, llb '56) Caudle as the 
Charlotte Association held its third 
annual student reception on a mild 
September evening. 

Just before dinner, the upperclass- 
men and entering freshmen exchanged 
emissaries, which led to a general 
mingling of the two groups. However, 
the alumni remained apart, though 
very much interested in this new breed 
of student. "What can I say to them?" 
they seemed to wonder. 

When everyone had finished eating, 
Roy Smart '43, president of the asso- 
ciation and its spokesman, welcomed 
the students. "I'm glad I don't have 
to compete with you all," he added. 
"It's a lucky thing I finished Duke 
when I did." 

A Duke film, Quest without End, 
followed, and at its conclusion, Phil 
Small '67, a Duke cheerleader, led a 
cheer thanking the Caudles for their 
hospitality. Thus, in their own way, 
spokesmen for each group had ex- 
changed greetings. Only years kept 
the two groups apart, for they were all 
there — freshmen, upperclassmen, and 
alumni — in the Caudles' backyard, and 
all part of the extraordinary diversity 
which is Duke. 

Reunion Preview 

Arthur L. Dowling, a member of 
the Class of 1941 at Amherst, accom- 
panied his wife, the former Polly War- 
ner '40, to the Silver Anniversary 
reunion of her class here at Duke dur- 
ing last year's Commencement Week- 
end. (Mr. Dowling says that "She is 
not older — just smarter.") In a sense, 
the trip enabled him to preview his 
own twenty-fifth reunion which is 
scheduled for this year. 

"It seems to me," he wrote in a 
recent issue of the Amherst alumni 
magazine, "that the spirit of the 
twenty-fifth is one of its own and 
somewhat different from earlier re- 
unions. Perhaps this is a point in the 
span of life where people become more 
philosophical. For me the highpoint 
was the Sunday morning chapel ser- 
vice. The Dean of the chapel is 
James T. Cleland, who many of you 
will remember as our popular profes- 
sor of religion at Amherst during our 
stay. He gave a short sermon on 
memories which would be as appro- 
priate for us at Amherst as it was for 
the [reuniting] classes of Duke. I left 
the Duke chapel convinced that re- 
unions are important to each of us 
and that participation is a genuine and 
rewarding experience. We were philo- 
sophically rejuvenated in addition to 
having good times at the social and 
intellectual events." 

The alumni office hopes that Mr. 
Dowling will have the same rewarding 
experience at Amherst. 

Meeting Alumni 

Duke President Douglas M. Knight 
has always attempted to speak at as 
many alumni meetings as possible. He 
is already scheduled to appear this 
year in the following locations: Phila- 
delphia, February 7; Detroit, Febru- 
ary 17; New York City, February 25; 
Burlington, North Carolina, March 
18; Greenville, South Carolina, March 
25; Cleveland, April 27; and Wilming- 
ton, North Carolina, May 3. 

His appearance in Wilmington will 
fulfill an obligation which illness pre- 
vented him from meeting last year. 
Confined to bed at the last minute, he 
called upon Dr. Robert F. Durden, 

Free lunch for alumni. 

professor of history, as a capable re- 
placement. He also sent word that 
he would appear in Wilmington at the 
next most opportune time. 

For the Coach 

The Greensboro Duke Alumni 
Association began looking forward to 
the basketball season recently when 
they presented Coach Vic Bubas a 
plaque in recognition of his devotion 
to the University and excellence as a 
coach. The organization also ex- 
pressed appreciation for Coach Bubas's 
"willingness to leave the campus and 
your home to meet with alumni or 
other organizations where the in- 
terests of Duke University can be 
enhanced and promoted." 


New Pants and 


on the Gridiron 

Coffee-break conversation in the Union was in 
its usual desultory state until it was announced 
during the latter part of August that the team 
was changing pants. For at least one morning the con- 
versation at some tables became animated, even heated. 
The whole controversy seemed to be typified by Jack 
Horner in his own inimitable style in the Durham Morn- 
ing Herald. The fact that the team was changing pants, 
he said, "is a lot to do about nothing." He then pro- 
ceeded to devote three-quarters of his sports column to 
the subject. 

The pants-change was also discussed elsewhere. At 
a dinner meeting following a day of golf sponsored by 
the athletic department for North Carolina sports 
writers and broadcasters, it was reported that "although 
Coach Bill Murray answered questions and discussed 
Duke football prospects, the chief topic of the entire 
program was a switch of colors of the school's football 
uniform for the coming season." Coach Murray ex- 
plained. The desire for a change, he said, came from 
the players, from equipment manager Howard Steele, 
then from Assistant Coach Doug Knotts who recom- 
mended the change to Coach Murray. The coach ap- 

So the predominantiy white pants as well as the 
rarely worn predominantly blue ones were discarded 
in favor of khaki-colored pants with a blue and white 
stripe two inches wide running down each side. White 
jerseys with blue numerals or blue jerseys with white 
numerals may be worn with the pants. The helmets 
are white with blue numerals and stripes. 

The players, it seems, wanted the change in order to 


present a new image after losing the last five games they 
played during 1964. Sports writers, however, seemed to 
feel that the team was hurting their copy. How could 
they refer to a team wearing khaki pants as The Big Blue 
or the Blue Devils? One writer even began calling them 
the Golden Devils. That balloon, however, did not sail 
very high. 

Many fans, even if they were slightly apprehensive 
about the change, seemed to accept it just as they would 
a gambler's superstition. They might not really believe 
that the change was going to change anything, but when 
they thought of the last five games of 1964 they were at 
least willing to hope. 

The new pants were finally unveiled on September 
18 when the team traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia, 
to play the University of Virginia. The final score was 
21-7 in favor of Duke. The lead paragraph in the story 
appearing in the Morning Herald began: "Duke's deter- 
mined Blue Devils. . . ." The pants, then, became an ac- 
cepted fact after one game; if there was any change in an 
image, it was only that this year's team looked as if it 
might be a winner rather than a loser. 

The opening game was as erratic as opening games 
usually are. At the start of the fourth quarter the score 
was tied 7-7. Then Jake Devonshire, a sophomore 
reserve halfback, squirmed through a crowding Virginia 
defense and was off for fifty-five yards and a touchdown. 
Four plays later tackle Chuck Stavins recovered a 
Virginia fumble deep in Cavalier territory. Another four 
plays and quarterback Scotty Glacken was around his 
own left end for the third and final Duke score. "I feel 
great," said Coach Murray. 

Was it the pants as well as practice? 

The following weekend the Blue Devils went down 
to Columbia, South Carolina, for a game with the Uni- 
versity of South Carolina. After three minutes and fifty- 
five seconds Duke was leading 7-0 following an eleven 
yard run by fullback Jay Calabrese. With less than a 
minute remaining in the first half Jake Devonshire took 
the ball over again and Duke was leading 14-0 at the 
half. South Carolina came back in the second half to 
make the score 14-9 with approximately eleven minutes 
left to play. Like Virginia, the Gamecocks were crowd- 
ing on defense. So when Duke took the kickoff after 
the South Carolina score and began a series of downs, it 
was not very long before Jay Calabrese found a hole in 
the line. And when he did, he was quickly through the 
secondary and off for a sixty-seven yard touchdown. 
The final score : 20- 1 5 . 

Three games into the season and Duke was still 
playing away from home. (Many people had not yet 
seen the new pants.) In Houston the Blue Devils took 
on the Owls of Rice University. It was the third con- 
secutive game that Duke marched for a touchdown the 
first time it had possession of the ball. Scotty Glacken 
provided the game's highlight by throwing four touch- 
down passes. The high scoring contest ended with a 
third win for Duke, 41-21. "It's always nice to win," 
said Coach Murray. 

The Blue Devils came home on October 9. (It was 
the first opportunity many fans had had to see the new 
pants. ) Playing the University of Pittsburgh on national 
television, Duke gave up a touchdown in the first five 
minutes of the game. In the second quarter, however, 
the Blue Devils scored three times. Page Wilson scored 
first, then Scotty Glacken passed to Chuck Drulis for the 
second one. With sightly more than a minute to play in 
the first half Scotty Glacken rolled out to his left and 
went over for the third and final Duke score. The game 
ended 21-13. The new pants were thought very hand- 
some by many of the fans. 

Homecoming was held the next weekend on 
October 16 as the Blue Devils took the field 
against the Clemson Tigers. It was an un- 
fortunate day, for Duke never seemed able to find the 
ball. The one time they did find it was shortly before the 
half when Bob Foyle blocked a Clemson punt which 
then went out of the end zone. At other times it seemed 
that the Blue Devils had found the ball again. When- 
ever this happened, the ball invariably disappeared. Six 
fumbles and one interception. It was a won-by-the-seat- 
of-the-pants ball game. The pants, however, were on 
the wrong team. Clemson: 3-2.

It's 8 a.m., Tuesday, in Melbourne. It's 5 p.m., Monday, in Detroit. And here — at the 
"heart" of General Motors' new world-wide communications network, an operator 
speeds a message on its way to Australia. At the start of the business day a GM 
executive group will have available a vital report, ready to act upon. 

Through advanced electronic switching gear in the GM Communications' network, 
virtually any GM location in the world may contact any other GM location, regardless 
of the type or speed of equipment at the other end, whether by magnetic tape, 
punched paper tape, punched cards or printed copy. Speeds vary from 60 words 
per minute to 3,000 and more! 

Approximately 23,000 messages of all kinds flow through Central Office in Detroit 
on an average day. This system puts the facts, figures, orders and ideas of GM people 
within brief minutes of other GM people reached through 72 regional communica- 
tion centers in the U.S. and Canada, plus overseas locations as widely removed as 
Sweden and South Africa. 

Interplay within the GM team is vital to its progress. Thus, the "Communicator" fills 
a keystone position.

In 1950 N. Thompson Powers '51 
scored six touchdowns in Duke's 
41-0 victory over the University of 
Richmond. He was the wingback who 
also scored the only touchdown in that 
year's 7-0 win over Carolina. Now, 
fifteen years later, his appointment as 
executive director of the Equal Em- 
ployment Opportunity Commission 
was announced by Chairman Franklin 
D. Roosevelt, Jr., in the football ver- 
nacular. "I appreciate Mr. Powers' 
willingness to tackle this assignment," 
he said. 

Mr. Powers, executive assistant to 
Secretary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz, 
agreed to serve as executive director 
of the commission during its organi- 
zation and initial operation. "His ex- 
perience . . . will be invaluable," said 
Mr. Roosevelt. 

Before joining the Department of 
Labor in 1961, Mr. Powers was with 
the law firm of Steptoe & Johnson in 
Washington. In only a year, he was 
selected as one of the top ten young 
men in government. 

A Hard Day's Work 

Richard M. Paddison '43, md '45, 
a friendly and outspoken individual, 
has been appointed chairman of a new 
department of neurology at the Louisi- 
ana State University School of Medi- 
cine. Neurology and psychiatry were 


previously grouped in one department. 
The chancellor of the Medical Center 
said that Dr. Paddison's appointment 
would "offer challenges which I know 
Dr. Paddison will accept and manage 
with scholarly vigor." 

In view of his responsibilities, the 
doctor will need a great deal of this 
vigor. He is a senior visiting physi- 
cian at Charity Hospital of Louisiana 
and chief of the LSU neurology ser- 
vice at the hospital as well as president 
of the hospital medical staff. These 
duties, in addition to other duties as 
professor and departmental head, 
amount to a hard day's work every- 

For the Sport 

John E. Larson me '55, a lacrosse 
player while at Duke, has been named 
product manager of the Charles A. 
Eaton Company's Etonic lines of golf 
shoes, sports clothing, and deck shoes. 
In his new position he will be respon- 
sible for structuring the Etonic lines 
for the golf, boating, and incentive 
markets, contracting with outside 
sources, supervising styling and quali- 
ty, and handling advertising and mer- 

While at Duke, Mr. Larson was 
president of Phi Kappa Psi and editor 
of the DukEngineer. He also was 
elected to Who's Who in American 

Colleges. Mr. Larson lives with his 
wife and two children in Hingham, 


Captain Jeremy R. Johnson llb '61 
was cited this summer for meritorious 
achievement while serving as legal 
assistance officer in the Judge Advo- 
cate General's Division at headquar- 
ters of the United States Army Com- 
munications Zone, Europe. This zone 
provides logistical, communications, 
and administrative support to all U.S. 
military forces in Europe. Captain 
Johnson, who was presented a Certifi- 
cate of Achievement, served as legal 
assistance officer during 1962-65. 

In Banking 

William Brownell '47, who went on 
to take his master's degree at Harvard's 
Graduate School of Business Admin- 
istration in 1956, has been promoted 
to manager of the Wells Fargo Bank's 
office in Corning, California. He 
joined the bank in 1956 and was serv- 
ing as assistant manager of a branch 
office before being appointed to his 
new position in a newly opened office. 

A member of the Northern Cali- 
fornia Duke Alumni Association, Mr. 
Brownell and his wife Lee now have 
four children. 

Born at the age of 128. 

Hanes Corporation was born February 26, 1965. Yet, it is 128 years old. 

You see, Hanes Corporation is the result of the merger of P. H. Hanes Knitting 

Company, 63 years old, and Hanes Hosiery Mills Company, 65 years old. 

Combined age? 128 years. 

This combination of youth and age is actually quite 

descriptive of Hanes Corporation. 

Young in ideas. 

Young in energy and enthusiasm. 

Young in excitement. 

But old in experience, maturity, and stability. 
So you can look to Hanes Corporation and its more than 9,000 employees to 
continue to offer the best in fine products for the whole family. 

Ladies' seamless stockings. 

Underwear for men and boys. 

Infants' and children's wear. Sleepwear. 

Sportswear and athletic uniforms. 

Socks for men and children.

November Comments 

This issue of the Register contains an article, "My 
Life at the University," taken from a chapter in 
a book entitled Memoirs of Capitalism, Com- 
munism, and Nazism. The book was published last 
month by Duke Press, and its author is Calvin Bryce 
Hoover, James B. Duke Professor of Economics, and 
one who does not need to be further identified to Duke 
alumni of the past forty years. 

Professor Hoover can look back upon a life devoted 
to a dual career. He has had extraordinary prowess as 
a teacher. He has also been directly influential in na- 
tional and international affairs. He has served often 
as a consultant to federal agencies and occasionally. 
too, as an administrator of federal programs. This is 
the career which he writes about in his Memoirs. 

Diligence, curiosity, and fortuitous timing placed 
Professor Hoover, during the Twenties and Thirties, 
first in Russia and then in Germany on days of critical 
importance for each of these nations and, indeed, for 
the world. Experience thus gained led to further adven- 
tures during World War II as a member of OSS, serving 
with General "Wild Bill" Donovan. 

It would be misleading to claim that Professor 
Hoover's book is as exciting as a James Bond thriller 
or that his exploits in any way parallel those of "007." 
But this book should hold fascination for two groups 
in particular — those who have known Dr. Hoover 
personally and who have attended his classes on the 
Duke campus, and those who have an interest in the 
frequent corollary role of a professor as a participant in 
public affairs. 

The content of Professor Hoover's book has been 
only suggested. There is much else in it. But here 
the book would seem to have a particular signifi- 
cance at this particular time, for now more than ever the 
affairs of universities and public affairs generally seem 
to be more intimately entwined than ever before, and 
especially throughout the various branches of the federal 
government. The role of the professor as a participant 
in public affairs, and the consequent involvement of 
universities, is opening up rather vast new opportunities 
for service, but these are opportunities not unaccom- 
panied by new or increased difficulties for the institu- 
tions themselves. 

A great deal is being heard now on this general 
subject and a great deal more will be heard in the 
future. Meanwnile, Professor Hoover's book illustrates 
that the teacher's involvement in decisive activity, a 
projection of his usefulness beyond the classroom to a 
concern with practice as well as theory, is truly nothing 
new and, indeed, has almost the force of tradition at the 
higher levels of the profession. 

At Duke, and presumably at other universities, the 
fall seems more intensely active than any other period 
of the year. This may be equally true in many other 
kinds of communities, but there does seem to be more 
intellectual vigor of all sorts in the autumn. 

Evidence of this is in the amount and type of mail 
that comes with each morning delivery. The variety of 
matters which concern Duke alumni and their relation- 
ships to the institution can sometimes be bewildering 
(and gratifying) and there appears to be an increasing 
willingness on the part of alumni to express themselves 
on university and academic matters. 

This is good. It is particularly good when thoughtful 
praise is as abundant as thoughtful criticism, and when 
both outweigh perfunctory compliment and rash protest. 

Perhaps, in fact, a true measure of a university's 
value lies in its ability to give permanent momen- 
tum to the thought processes of its students, a 
permanency proven by the cerebral (and emotional) 
vigor of its alumni. 

This autumn the mail gives unusual evidence that 
this vigor continues. Occasionally, however, one is 
left baffled by a particular criticism. A brief note 
came the other day from one of the University's oldest 
and best and most loyal friends. In a moment of tempo- 
rary discontent, and perhaps uncertainty, the writer 
mildly protested the fact that he could no longer seem 
to find among the corridors of the campus individuals 
with whom he had much in common. 

"It is hard," he wrote, "to find a Duke man on the 
Duke campus any longer. And no one at all seems to 

be accessible. There is no one there like and 

with whom I felt something in common. 

'As a matter of fact," the note concluded, "there 
is no longer anyone at Duke as old as people."

How does your job measure up to a career with Mass Mutual? 

IN INCOME? One out of every 5 Mass Mutual repre- 
sentatives earned over $20,000 in 1964. Those with 5 or 
more years' experience averaged $14,978. 

And the top 100 producers averaged $36,943 for the year. 

IN PRESTIGE? Mass Mutual representatives hold an 
unusually high proportion of the top honors in the insurance 

One in 3 Agents and General Agents won the National 
Quality Award in 1964. 

One in 8 was a member of the Million Dollar Round Table. 

One in 5 Mass Mutual men is a Chartered Life Under- 
writer (one of the industry's highest honors)! 

IN ASSOCIATIONS? Mass Mutual men enjoy the 
rewards of working with successful people. In 1964, new 
individual policies (not including those issued on Pension 
Plans) averaged $19,195. 

Mass Mutual wrote 6.5% of all Pension Trust Plans 
written in the U.S. last year. 

And out of $1.1 billion of individual life insurance we sold 
in 1964, Business Insurance accounted for $210 million! 

Success has many yardsticks. In any business, however, these 
are the factors that count. 

If you are dissatisfied with your progress, or feel that your 
rewards don't measure up to your effort . . . it's probably 
time to re-evaluate your situation. Compare your present job 
with the above facts about a career with Mass Mutual. 

Mass Mutual is a solid company, with over 100 years' 
experience. It's a company held in high regard by the rest 
of the Insurance industry. If you'd like more information on 

a career with Mass Mutual, just write a personal letter 
about yourself and mail it to Charles H. Schaaff, President 
Massachusetts Mutual Life Ins. Co., Springfield, Massachusetts.

When the Medical Center opened 
in 1930 its facilities were ade- 
quate for 600 students in the various 
health professions. The number of 
students has doubled in the intervening 
period. The capacity of the center's 
facilities has not. The Medical Center 
is "bulging at the seams," according 
to the reports of outside consultants. 
The need for new facilities is critical. 

Just as critical is the need through- 
out the country for trained health 
personnel. It has been estimated that 
the nation's medical schools must grad- 
uate 12,000 doctors annually by 1970 
in order to maintain the present ratio 
of doctors to population. Today, only 
8,000 are graduated each year. The 
shortage is just as acute in other medi- 
cal areas. 

In order to meet these related needs, 
the Medical Center will share sub- 
stantially in the University's three-year, 
$102,876,000 capital gifts campaign. 
In fact, 38 per cent or $28,800,000 of 
the $75,576,000 designated for physi- 
cal plant projects within the University 
will go to the Medical Center. Accord- 
ingly, Dr. Barnes Woodhall, vice pro- 
vost for medical affairs, has unveiled 
plans for a three-year expansion pro- 
gram which will more than double the 
size of the present center. These 
expanded facilities will include: 

(1) A $10,000,000 teaching and ad- 
ministration building which will 
facilitate a 60 per cent increase in the 
enrollments of the School of Medicine 

and School of Nursing. Each Medical 
School class will be increased from 80 
to 128 students. In the School of 
Nursing, undergraduate enrollment 
will rise to ninety students each class 
in addition to the training of fifty grad- 
uate and thirty special students an- 
nually. Enrollments in the training 
programs for other health-related pro- 
fessions will also be increased. 

(2) A $5,200,000 basic sciences 
building which will provide space for 
the departments of physiology and 
pharmacology, biochemistry, and the 
genetics division. It also will provide 
additional facilities for an immunology 
program concerned with much of the 
basic work in the University's organ 
and tissue transplantation efforts. 

(3) A new medical library cost- 
ing $2,800,000 and having a capacity 
of approximately 300,000 volumes. 
The present medical library has a 
capacity of 50,000 volumes. The new 
facility will be designed to serve as a 
regional storage and retrieval center 
for medical information. Through 
the use of computerized equipment, 
doctors in the South will be able to dial 
the library to obtain the latest informa- 
tion about any disease or disorder. 

(4) A new hospital costing approxi- 
mately $8,000,000. This building will 
initially contain 128 patient-beds with 
necessary supporting services and facil- 
ities for ultimate expansion to 400 

(5) A new clinical research unit 

which will cost $1,700,000 and will 
house a new hyperbaric oxygenation 
unit. Hyperbaric oxygenation, which

Foundation had agreed to sell the Uni- 
versity 153 parcels of land and build- 
ings between East and West. The land 
is essential to the University in its com- 
mitment to concepts embodied in a 
new Master Campus Plan. With this 
land, said President Douglas M. 
Knight at the convocation, "we shall 
have an adequate base for the develop-

and activity between those two which

inevitable conflicts that have existed 

about whether we are putting our pri-

emphasis is on the whole University." 

Title to the land was formally trans-

a great extent by individual residences

New Look Out Back 

The department of chemistry got a 
new chairman this fall, Dr. Charles K. 
Bradsher, a James B. Duke Professor, 
and now the department is in the news 
again through an announcement to the 
effect that a new departmental home is 
being planned for a site located be- 
tween the School of Law and Biologi- 
cal Sciences Building. As many people 
have commented, this part of the 
campus can use some architectural 
embellishment, for the red brick build- 
ings presently located there are com- 
monly referred to as belonging to the 
Twentieth Century Post Office and 
Modern Penitentiary architectural 
styles. According to a news release, 

the new Chemistry Building "will uti- 
lize Hillsboro stone and glass promi- 
nently, and will be so designed as to 
blend the features of the adjacent 
brick and limestone buildings with 
those of the Gothic structures of the 
main quadrangle nearby." Quite a job 
— and if the chemistry department can 
do it a substantial contribution will 
have been made to the aesthetic ap- 
pearance of the campus. 

At present, chemistry is located in a 
building thirty-five years old. It is 
the last of the laboratory sciences still 
occupying its original West Campus 
quarters. The rapid and dramatic 
changes in the physical sciences in 
recent years have frequently made 
laboratories which are only two 
decades old obsolete. So the Duke 
department is in great need of a new 

It would be less than honest, of 
course, to paint an entirely black 
picture of the chemistry department in 
its present quarters. The fact remains, 
however, that the lack of adequate 
physical facilities is hampering the 
effectiveness of the department. It is 
having difficulty recruiting new faculty 
members because of insufficient equip- 
ment and space for research. These 
same reasons place the department in 
an uncompetitive position in solicita- 
tion of foundation and government 
research grants. Its library is good, but 
limited seating and storage facilities 
prevent adequate service being given 
to all students. Space limitations have 
also prevented the department from 
providing instruction to majors in 
other science departments within the 
University and from providing needed 
expansion of graduate and post- 
doctoral instruction. These very real 
problems will be overcome with con- 
struction of a new facility for teaching 
and research. 

In order to avoid its present predica- 
ment in future years, the department 
is making a determined effort to see 
that built-in obsolescr.nce is avoided in 
its new home. Architects are designing 
a modular structure which will be flexi- 
ble enough to provide laboratories that 
may be expanded or subdivided ac- 
cording to needs arising in a field of 
rapid change. Also, the versatility of 
the building is expected to allow the

addition of space and equipment or 
the revision of teaching methods as 
change requires. 

The Chemistry Building has high 
priority among those buildings in- 
cluded in the $102,876,000 capital 
gifts campaign being conducted by the 
University. Its cost is expected to be 
approximately $4,950,000. Hopefully, 
construction will be underway by next 

New Professorship 

Any alumnus who ever went down 
to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, 
for a house party is likely to remember 
passing the Babies Hospital just be- 

fore crossing the bridge over the sound 
to the beach proper. But he probably 
would not have related it to Duke. 
Now, however, the founder of that 
hospital and research center, Dr. J. 
Buren Sidbury, a 1908 graduate of 
Trinity College, has endowed a profes- 
sorship at the University. 

The professorship, known as the J. 
Buren Sidbury Professorship in Pedi- 
atrics, was awarded for the first time 
during the Medical School Alumni 
Weekend held on campus in October. 
The endowed chair went to Dr. Jerome 
S. Harris, chairman of the department 
of pediatrics at the Medical Center. 

Dr. Sidbury, who is now seventy- 
nine years old, is considered by his col- 
leagues as a pioneer pediatrician in the 

South. He started his practice in Wil- 
mington, North Carolina, in 1915. His 
work there in detecting early cases of 
tuberculosis and tracing them to their 
source is considered a classic example 
of community health education. In 
1920 the high mortality rate associated 
with "summer diarrhea" in infants 
prompted him to found the Babies 
Hospital to specialize in the acute ill- 
nesses of children. He later donated a 
nursing home there and was instru- 
mental in forming the Babies Hospital 
Research Center in 1961. 

In addition to his service as a phy- 
sician, Dr. Sidbury served the Univer- 
sity as a trustee for sixteen years 
prior to his retirement from the board 
in 1963. 

A portrait of Dr. Sidbury was 
donated by his children and presented 
to the Medical Center at an alumni 
dinner on October 12. 

Dr. Harris, who now occupies the 
named chair, joined the Duke faculty 
in 1937. He has worked extensively 
with metabolic diseases of children and 
in pediatric cardiology. 

A New Dean 

Dr. F. Hodge O'Neal has been 
named to succeed Dr. E. R. Latty as 
dean of the School of Law. Although 
a definite date has not been announced 
for the changeover, it will take place 
no later than July, 1967. "If I serve 
until July 1, 1967," said Dean Latty in 
a Law School publication, "I will have 
been dean for ten years, which is long 
enough for any administrator. I've 
noticed in the education world, and 
perhaps this goes for big business also, 
that a dean or president, if he is going 
to do anything big, will do it in the 
first five years." Therefore Dean Latty 
requested the change in leadership for 
the best interests of the School. He 
will, however, remain on the faculty 
and assume an increased teaching load. 

Dr. O'Neal, a member of the Duke 
faculty for the past six years, once 
served as acting dean of the Law 
School at Mercer University. He has 
also been on the law faculties of the 
University of Mississippi, Vanderbilt, 
and New York University. Currently 
director of the University's Small Busi- 

ness Research Project, Dr. O'Neal is 
recognized by his colleagues as an 
authority on close corporations. He 
has written extensively in this field, 
and his publications include a two- 
volume study entitled Close Corpora- 
lions: Law and Practice. He also is 
editor of Corporate Practice Commen- 
tator, a legal periodical. 

Since becoming dean of the Law 
School in 1958, Dr. Latty has led the 
School to new levels of achievement. 
It was a small school in a small build- 
ing when he assumed office. Its stu- 
dent body was largely from the South 
and its reputation was confined for the 
most part to the same geographical 
area. Today, the School occupies a 
modern building complete with the 
comfort of air conditioning. Students 
now at the School come from colleges 
throughout the nation. Only about 
one-fourth of them are from the South. 
In addition, enrollment has more than 
doubled and the median law test ad- 
mission score of entering classes has at 
times ranked third in the nation. "He 
works like a Trojan," one faculty 
member is quoted as having said. "He 
is here from early to late, and little 
goes on without his hand being in it." 
The work was obviously effective. 

"Dean Latty has never played for 
popularity," says Spence Perry, a law 
student, in The Devil's Advocate. "He 
is interested only in doing the best 
job he can. ... He is a man who keeps 
on giving, and his carefully laid out 
plan for succession is indicatve of 
how far he has gone to serve this com- 
munity of scholars. 

"It is terribly sentimental, and he 
probably wouldn't like to have it 
brought up in his presence, but I think 
we can all see a maudlin reunion forty 
years from now when some of us, at 
least, will be proud to be known as 
'one of Latty's boys.' " 

No Landing 

From the window in the alumni pub- 
lications office one can view the 
Chapel tower. The other day the view 
was startling. A man was perched on 
one of the ledges. Now the usual oc- 
cupants of these ledges are pigeons, 
and since someone did jump from the 

tower several years ago, it was decided 
that a telephone call to the Chapel was 
in order. A lady answered. 

"Did you know somebody was 
climbing around the tower?" 


"Yes. Some guy's out there on a 
ledge. Looks like he might be work- 

"Just a minute and let me connect 
you with someone else." 

As it turned out, the man on the 
ledge was just going about his business. 
And his business was spreading pigeon 
repellent. "The carillonneur is happy 
now that he won't be getting parrot 
fever," said the second person admitted 
to the telephone conversation. "Also, 
the janitor was having a hard time 
keeping things clean." 

The problem of pigeons is not un- 
common on campus. The man on the 
ledge was using a caulking gun to 
spread a putty-like substance on which 
the pigeons do not enjoy lighting. 
Since the substance is not effective 
after it dries, the process must be re- 
peated about every four months. In 
the meantime, the pigeon population 
seems as large as ever.

My Life 

at the 

by Calvin B. Hoover 
James B. Duke Professor of Economics 

Dr. Hoover discusses academic freedom, teaching 
and research, and the Southern textile industry. 
A remembrance, too, of numerous colleagues, 
students, and a quixotic code confronted by reality. 

When I arrived at Duke [in 1925], it was still in 
its physical form entirely unchanged from 
Trinity College, and its intellectualmodification 
was just barely beginning. Trinity was indeed a South- 
ern college, but neither the college itself nor Durham, 
the town in which it was located, had much connection 
with the stereotype of the plantation South — Southern 
colonels, faithful colored servants, moonlight and roses, 
etc. Such a South had, of course, been largely fictitious 
anyhow, but it had even less relevancy to Trinity Col- 
lege and Durham, North Carolina, than almost any- 
where else in the South. 

Durham had barely existed before the Civil War. 
At the census of 1870, it had had 256 inhabitants. It 
was an industrial town of some 40,000 inhabitants when 
I arrived. It owed its existence first to the tobacco 
factories which the Duke family had been largely instru- 
mental in establishing, and secondly to the textile mills, 
in which there had also been a Duke investment. 
Trinity College had been moved to Durham some years 
before from its original location farther west in the state 
with the prospect of financial support from Washington

Duke, the father of J. B. Duke. This financial support 
had been forthcoming and had been largely responsible 
for the survival of the college. 

From the first I thought of myself as much more 
radical in my social and economic outlook than was true 
of the trustees of Duke University, the trustees of the 
Duke Endowment, the university administration, the 
city of Durham, and the state of North Carolina in 
general. I realize now that I carried a chip on my 
shoulder for many years. 

Shortly after my arrival, Paul Blanshard, a reporter 
for the Nation, appeared on the campus and suggested 
that he might talk to one of my classes. I willingly 
agreed. In the course of his talk he made the statement 
that Southern textile workers were the lowest paid 
industrial workers in the United States. It happened 
that one of the students in the class provided the 
Associated Press with occasional items about events at 
the university. The statement about the lower wages of 
Southern textile workers was published widely. One of 
the Duke trustees was outraged. He wrote a letter to 
President Few saying that he was "shocked that anything 
of the sort could have happened within the sacred 
portals of Duke University." I was shown the letter but 
was not reprimanded. As I thought the matter over, I 
felt that the trustee perhaps had a right to be irritated. 
I had been hired to teach classes in economics. Did I 
have a right to turn my class, a captive audience, over as 
a forum for an outsider to present his point of view? It 
is not easy to give a categoric answer. 

I have always felt that an instructor should not be 
a protagonist of policies in the economic, political, or 
social fields. I would be ashamed to give a course which 
glorified capitalism, and I would frown on its being done 
by an instructor for whom I had some responsibility. 
Certainly I should feel the same way about being a pro- 
tagonist for socialism. Protagonism for Soviet Com- 
munism would be ruled out on more positive grounds 
since the system denies all freedom. Yet, perhaps, I am 
naive in disclaiming protagonism for capitalism. A 
student who took my courses could not fail to know 
that I found our present system of modified capitalism 
in the United States preferable to alternative economic 
and political systems. Yet I think the comparison could 
be presented in no other way. It would be quite 
intolerable intellectually to present the advantages and 
disadvantages of alternative economic systems so that 
they exactly balanced, when in fact, in my judgment, 
they do not. Indeed, I have never favored the method 
of presenting the good and the evil of alternative 
economic systems as a method of teaching. On the 
contrary, it is much better simply to analyze their 
structure and functioning and allow the student to 
decide about their goodness and badness. 

What Blanshard had said about low wages in South- 
ern textile mills was quite true. The workers not only 
were unorganized, their political power was almost nil. 
Consequently, they were unable to improve their lot 
either through collective bargaining or labor legislation. 
Yet the development of the textile industry had given 
employment to men and women who would otherwise 
have been unemployed or living at a still lower standard 
of living in the back country. The South had been an 
underdeveloped area up to this time. In this stage it had 
needed low wages, in the first instance, to enable its yarn 
and cloth to be sold in competition with those of the 
established mills of New England. Further, the Southern 
textile industry could not obtain economic aid in the 
form of grants or low-interest loans from abroad as do 
India and other underdeveloped countries from the 
United States today. Contrary to what is commonly 
believed, the textile industry did not move down to the 
South bodily from New England. Much the greater 
number of Southern mills were indigenous, built up by 
Southern entrepreneurs with Southern capital. The 
Southern mill owners had had more sense than to invest 
their scarce capital in secondhand machinery from New 
England. They bought new machinery with capital built 
up out of the profits attainable from paying wages which 
were low in comparison with the North but high in 
comparison with other employment opportunities avail- 
able in the South. 

All this is changed now. If Southern organized labor 
does not have the quasi-monopoly of economic and 
political power which it wields in the industrial areas 
outside the South, its economic and political power is 
already great. Ironically enough, however, the competi- 
tion which the Southern textile industry now has to try 
to meet comes not from the dead textile industry of 
New England, but from low-wage countries of the world 
favored until very recently by cheap subsidized Ameri- 
can raw cotton. 

Since I have been at Duke, the issue of academic free- 
dom has occasionally arisen again. Many years 
later one of our wealthy alumni wrote a letter and 
sent us an article which had been written denouncing 
as radical and subversive Lorie Tarshis' Principles of 
Economics, which we were using as the text in our 
course in principles. I had, in fact, adopted the text on 
the recommendation of the committee of instructors who 
were teaching the course, but as chairman of the depart- 
ment, I assumed general responsibility for all texts used. 
Professor William H. Wannamaker, then Vice President 
and Dean of the University, showed me the letter and 
article, and we then both individually examined the text. 
While I naturally would not have agreed with everything 
in the book, I could find nothing in it which would have 
made its use as a text inappropriate. Dean Wannamaker 
made exactly the same finding. We courteously so in- 
formed the alumnus. I do not think he was happy with 
our reply, and perhaps we lost a potential million dollars 
in endowment thereby. I know of no instance since I 
have been at Duke of repression of academic freedom. 
Certainly I know of no other institution at which I could 
have been freer to study, to teach, to write, and to talk 
about anything I liked. 

Professors sometimes would restrict the freedom of 
others to criticize us. I have heard professors denounce 
any criticism of themselves as though it were a crime. 
It is charged that professors of economics generally 
advocate "creeping socialism." I do not believe it, but 
I think that this is an expression of opinion which any- 
one should be free to make. I do not believe that 
professors should be exempt from criticism. I have been 
referred to orally, although not in my presence, as a 
Red and as probably a Communist. This is on a par 
with being called a Fascist or a Nazi. Some left-leaning 
professors seem to think, however, that they should be 
permitted to refer to persons by these terms without any 
inhibitions. I have been referred to in print as "the 
celebrated reactionary, Calvin Hoover." I did, indeed, 
resent the use of these epithets. Yet if a man speaks, 
writes, and takes part in the formulation of public policy, 
he must expect to be denounced sometimes. As former 


President Truman has put it, "If you can't stand the 
heat, you had better get out of the kitchen." 

Since I was impressed on my arrival in Durham by 
the low level of both economic and political power of 
labor in North Carolina, I was eager to do whatever I 
could to improve its situation. At that time, North 
Carolina had no Workmen's Compensation Act to 
provide compensation for injuries suffered in employ- 
ment. Consequently, if a laborer was injured on the 
job, he was dependent upon the good will of his 
employer or he had to bring a court action. In the latter 
case, he might have to pay half of anything the court 
awarded in lawyer's fees. Wisconsin had had one of the 
first and best of the Workmen's Compensation Acts, 
and it had been drawn in such a way that the courts 
had held it to be constitutional, and I was familiar with 
it. A committee was formed which included Frank 
Graham, later President of the University of North 
Carolina, T. U. Wilson, representing the AF of L, as 
well as a number of professors from neighboring institu- 
tions. We got the American Association for Labor 
Legislation, headed by a Wisconsin friend, to draw up 
a model bill. 

Fortunately, the representative of the manufacturers 
of North Carolina in dealing with these matters before 
the committee of the legislature was a most able and 
forward-looking attorney, Melville Broughton, later 
governor and senator. He fully recognized the merits of 
the proposed bill and supported it before the legislature. 
In consequence, one of the most liberal Workmen's 
Compensation Acts in the nation was adopted. Almost 
the only opposition was from a handful of "ambulance- 
chasing" lawyers. 

After a few years my contacts with political, eco- 
nomic, and educational personalities and move- 
ments were greatly facilitated by my membership 
in the Watauga Club. This club consisted of some 
twenty members, made up of several of the leading 
newspaper men, educators, and holders of state offices. 
It usually included the governor, a former governor or 
two, a senator or former senator, the President of the 
University of North Carolina, the Chancellor of State 
College, and others. Dr. Clarence Poe, editor of the 
Progressive Farmer, was the moving spirit of the club. 
Membership was for life, except that for reasons of 
health or absence from the state one might go on 
inactive status. We had dinners twice a month, original- 
ly at the home of a member, but eventually, as the 
servant situation changed, at a hotel or club. The club 
was the means of informal contact by which new and old 
ideas and projects could be informally discussed and 
often developed and put into effect without political or 

class acrimony. Contacts of this sort among influential 
people in the state have played a role in preventing the 
rise of the political demagogue or the corrupt politician 
which have plagued some other Southern states as well 
as others outside the South. The club became my main 
source of political lore and of acquaintance with North 
Carolinian personalities. 

From the Watauga Club I also absorbed a wealth of 
information on North Carolinian folkways, together 
with a choice collection of tales of events, full of local 
color. Some of the best of these tales dealt with the 
accommodation made by whites and Negroes to local 
mores. According to one tale, a large landowner who 
also operated a general store sued one of his tenants for 
a sum which he claimed was due him. The facts in the 
case as stated by the white landlord were apparently 
incontrovertible. The Negro offered only one defense. 
"I know Mr. Johnson is a fine, educated man, and he 
wouldn't lie. But Mr. Johnson's got five farms and 
twenty-two share croppers. Besides that, he got that 
big store. He got to keep track of all them things, and 
any man is just bound to forget some things. Me, I only 
got this little share crop piece of land to remember 
about, and I can remember one thing and that's like I 
told you all." The all white jury found for the Negro. 
The judge set aside the verdict as patently contrary to 
the facts. The case was tried again with the same result. 
On the third trial, the landlord asked to be heard and 
said, "This case has been heard twice before, and the 
jury found for the defendant. I would like to ask that 
the case against the defendant be dismissed." Needless 
to say, it was dismissed. 

Another yarn had to do with a "mean white" who 
had made a good deal of money running a general store 
and loaning money to Negroes at high rates of interest 
on chattel mortgages. Hearing of a state highway which 
was to be constructed to run through a small farm 
owned by a Negro farmer, he encouraged the Negro to 
borrow money on a note secured by a chattel mortgage 
on a hog. He knew that the owner of the farm would get 
a handsome payment for the land required by the high- 
way. After a while the Negro sold the hog, doubtless 
intending to pay the holder of the mortgage eventually. 
But to sell mortgaged property without the consent of 
the mortgage holder constituted a criminal offense. The 
"mean white" threatened the Negro with jail if he did 
not sell his farm to him for a pitifully low price. 

The Negro went at once to a local white lawyer with 
a reputation for looking after poor men in trouble and 
told his story. The lawyer went to the white man and 
said, "Here is your money due you on your note secured 
by your chattel mortgage. I know this man acted 
illegally when he sold the hog without your permission. 


I can assure you, however, that regardless of the law, 
no jury in North Carolina before which I will try this 
case will convict this man." "O.K.," was the reply; 
"you can't blame me for trying." 

When the lawyer reported the happy result to his 
Negro client, the Negro said, "Mr. Eaton, I surely do 
thank you. I know you've got a white skin, but you've 
surely got a mighty black heart." 1 

Soon after my move to Duke I wrote an article based 
upon my doctoral dissertation which was published 
in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, "The Sea 
Loan in Genoa in the Twelfth and Thirteenth Cen- 
turies." Since I had learned how important so-called 
scholarly publication was for advancement in the profes- 
sion, I had been delighted when the article was accepted. 
I even received fifty dollars for it, which was a small 
additional delight, for I did not know that anything at 
all was paid for such articles. Soon thereafter I pub- 
lished an article in the Nation entitled "The South is Still 

The favorable reception of both articles was, I think, 
largely determinative of my life as a writer. If both 
these articles had been rejected, I doubt whether I would 
have had enough self-confidence to continue research 
and writing. It is sometimes charged that too much 
emphasis is placed in the academic world on publication 
of research. This is true in many instances. Academic 
advancement does indeed depend much more upon 
research and publication than upon the quality of one's 
teaching. It is often erroneously assumed, however, that 
a good research man is almost never a good teacher 
and vice versa. This is simply not so. Still less true is 
the crass form of this which runs, "He does no research 
and consequently he is bound to be a good teacher." 

During the next forty years I was to write eight 
books and some hundred articles. Most of the articles 
were in so-called learned journals such as the American 
Economic Review, The Economic Journal, The Journal 
of Political Economy, the Quarterly Journal of Eco- 
nomics, The Southern Economic Journal, and the like. 
But I also wrote for a wider public in the Virginia 
Quarterly Review, The Yale Review, Foreign Affairs, 
the Economist, Current History, Die Neue Rundschau 
and others. I even wrote articles for the Sunday New 
York Times and, after my friend Russell Wiggins be- 
came editor, an article for the Washington Post. 

I do not believe that this research and writing was 
at all detrimental to my service as a professor except in 
the sense that I could not be teaching during the years 
when I had leaves to carry out major research projects. 

1. The late William T. Polk, genial correspondent of the Greensboro 
Daily News and a member of Watauga used to tell the story. It can 
also be found in his Southern Accent (New York: William Morrow & 
Co., 1953). 


For twenty years I was also Chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Economics, and for ten of those years I was 
Dean of the Graduate School. Through the years I have 
also participated actively in the various committees and 
councils of the university. 

Much the same could be said of my service as an 
economic and strategic Intelligence adviser to govern- 
ment. This began in 1933 with the emergency engen- 
dered by the Great Depression and has continued sub- 
stantially to the present time. I recognize, however, that 
there is always a potential conflict of interest between 
the claims of one's own university on one's time and the 
needs of government. Except in dire emergency, uni- 
versities cannot be expected to release members of their 
faculties for governmental service at any moment and 
for periods of indefinite length. It has come to be a 
routine ploy for my friends whom I may meet at a 
conference in Washington, New York, London, Paris, 
or Berlin to exclaim, "Don't you ever stay home?" 
My answer is that actually I stay home most of the time, 
but I naturally meet them when I am away from Duke. 
In fact, much of the time that I have been away from 
Duke has been during the summer, on weekends, or on 
regular sabbatical leaves. The exceptions have been the 
emergencies of two wars and the Great Depression. 

It would assuredly not have been possible for me to 
have served for twenty years as Chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Economics while carrying on so many other 
activities if it had not been for Dr. Frank de Vyver, who 
for many years took so much of the management of the 
department off my shoulders. Rarely have any two 
people worked so closely and amicably together. We 
continued to do so after he became my successor as 

That the department has been rated in recent years 
among the top ten in the nation has been due in signifi- 
cant degree to the insistence of Dr. Joseph Spengler, 
who for some years has been Director of Graduate 
Studies in the department, on the maintenance of the 
highest standards in graduate work. His own scholarly 
articles have also constituted a major element in the very 
substantial publication list of the department. 

I had taught principles of economics at Duke from 
the first, and as the department grew in size, I had 
general direction of all our sections in addition to my 
two graduate courses, the one in economic theory, the 
other in economic systems. At first I had just two 
graduate students, Dick Harvill and Ben Ratchford. 
The one is President of the University of Arizona, and 
the other is now Vice President in charge of Research 
at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. For years 
the latter was a colleague professor at Duke, and I sent 
for him whenever I had a difficult assignment whether in 

Washington, Berlin, or Paris. He always came and 
performed with the efficiency which characterizes all 
that he does. Another of my early graduate students, 
Dr. Robert S. Smith, has been and still is an esteemed 
colleague at Duke and is now chairman of the depart- 

Like all university professors, I have through the 
years had thousands of students. I have learned an 
enormous amount in the process of teaching them. I 
keep meeting my former students pretty much all over 
the world. It is a pleasure since students almost always 
look back on their college days and even on their profes- 
sors through rose tinted glasses, however critical of 
them they may have felt in their student days. I recall 
walking down the Rue de la Paix in Paris on my way 
back from our Army of Occupation in Germany in the 
late summer of 1945. An army jeep rolled by. A head 
stuck itself out of the jeep and yelled, "Hi, Doc 
Hoover!" I am sure the student had never before seen 
me in uniform. I do not know to this day who he was, 
but it gave me a small thrill. 

One of the finest things about the academic profes- 
sion is the almost four months that one has off in the 
summer. Perhaps 20 per cent of the profession take 
these months simply as a vacation. Personally, I do not 
see how anyone could do it. Most of the profession, 
however, teach in the summer session, do research at 
home or abroad, work as consultants for the government 
or for industry, or perhaps just work up their courses 
for the next year. The opportunity to do something 
quite different from what I do during the regular year, 
which for me has usually meant research abroad or 
acting as economic advisor to our government, has been 
a privilege beyond price. 

During the summer of 1927 I taught in the summer 
session at Cornell University. After the six weeks' 
summer session was over, I worked on a research article 
based on material from the medieval Genoese archives. 
Almost every afternoon our family went on picnics along 
the lovely Finger Lakes or in the glens. I have never 
seen anything more lovely in the world than Enfield 
Glen, and we enjoyed these picnics immensely. 

What was really noteworthy about the summer in 
Ithaca was an incident which finally dampened 
the Don Quixote complex which has always 
afflicted me [In an earlier chapter, Professor Hoover 
says, "My absorption with tales of war and romantic 
adventure had caused me to embrace a very unrealistic 
code of conduct when confronted by superior force. 
This Don Quixote code was the more likely to get me 
into trouble since it included a sense of duty to intervene 
to protect the weak from the strong." — Editor.] While 
I was walking along University Avenue one day with 

my daughter Carol, then about six years old, I became 
aware of an altercation going on in the yard of a house 
a few yards ahead of us. The ground sloped steeply 
down from the sidewalk here and one looked down al- 
most on the roofs of the houses. It was as though I had 
suddenly walked into the middle of a movie. I saw a 
burly man in painter's overalls pick up a board and strike 
a rather slight, well-dressed man over the head. The 
board split in two, apparently because of the violence of 
the blow (actually because of the rottenness of the 
board), the man fell to the ground, and his assailant 
began to kick him in the head. I was overcome with 
horror. I assumed that the attacker must have suddenly 
gone insane. I felt that I should at once defend the man 
on the ground against his brutal assailant. 

However, I feared for the safety of my small 
daughter. Hastily I grabbed her hand and ran back with 
her about a block and planted her behind a rose bush, 
enjoining her not to move until I got back. I then 
returned to the scene of the incident. The painter was 
standing beside his ladder, which leaned against the 
house, saying not a word. The wife of the man on the 
ground, who was bleeding slightly from the nose, had 
come out of the house and was wringing her hands. 
It no longer seemed appropriate to try to restrain the 
assailant, since he was momentarily not moving. I picked 
the man up off the ground and carried him into the 
house and laid him on a sofa. I then started to phone 
the police. To my surprise the woman tried to dissuade 
me. I nevertheless did call the police, and as soon as I 
was sure that they were on the way, I went back and 
collected my daughter and took her home. I worried 
over the memory of that brutal attack for several days 
with the feeling that I should have intervened more 
rapidly and violently than I had been able to do. 

I later heard what had happened just prior to my 
arrival on the scene, and it was like seeing the first half 
of a movie which one had missed by coming in late. 
The painter had been on the ladder painting the house. 
The owner of the house, who got knocked down, had 
been drunk and had tried to pull the ladder out from 
under the painter. When the painter had tumbled down 
the ladder and protested, the man had drawn a knife on 
him. At this point I had come in, and from there on out 
the incident had taken on an utterly deceptive ap- 
pearance. I never forgot it, and it was to prevent me 
from going off half-cocked in a good many situations

Scotty Glacken provided football fans with 
two and one-half seasons of exciting play and 
set some records doing it before injuring his 
knee in a game against the University of Illinois. 

The wind is to blame. Each autumn on the Illinois 
plains the weather becomes raw, almost cold by 
common Midwestern measure (freezing anywhere 
else), and scattered windsocks point their hollow snouts 
southward in retreat from the frigid northerly drafts. A 
local meteorologist surprised no one with his weather 
prediction for the October 23 contest between Illinois' 
Fighting Illini and the Duke Blue Devils at Champaign- 
Urbana. By game time Memorial Stadium had become 
a veritable wind tunnel with gusts of twenty-five miles 

per hour and more pounding from goal post to goal 
post. A second quarter aerial thrown by Edward 
"Scotty" Glacken rode this wind wide of its mark and 
was intercepted. In the ensuing chase, Scotty was hit 
with a shattering block by Illinois linebacker Don Han- 
sen. This block ended Scotty's career at Duke, for it 
resulted in a painful but not uncommon football injury 
— strained knee ligaments. Dr. Frank Bassett, the as- 
sistant professor of orthopedic surgery who also serves 
as team doctor, examined the injured right knee in 
Durham the next day. No surgery was necessary, but 
the knee was placed in a cast for several weeks. Scotty 
resigned himself to many stiff-kneed treks between 
classes and his nearly inaccessible fourth-floor room. 
"It was a good block; I didn't even see him coming." 

Scotty, the starting quarterback for the Blue Devils 
since the second game of his sophomore year in 1963, 
has been a scrambler and passer for most of his football 
career. As an aspiring field general in the Catholic Youth 
Organization league in Bethesda, Maryland, he had the 
strongest fifth-grade arm on the playground and was 
immediately assigned the honored position of signal 

But it was at St. John's College High School in 
Bethesda that Scotty's drive and enthusiasm were fused 
with his natural abilities to produce the talented Mad- 
hatter-style that he brought to Duke. When Joe Gal- 
lagher, who still coaches the Catholic team, discovered 
himself in possession of a covey of fleet receivers and 
one mauser-armed passer, he developed an offense 
similar to that used by the professionals. It worked. 
In 1961 Scotty's passing brought his team the tough 
Catholic League Championship and earned him an All- 
Metropolitan berth. 

By this time many representatives of the nation's 
college football elite had made the pilgrimage to 
Bethesda to view the "arm" in action. They came away 
impressed. After brief flirtations in many directions, 
Scotty narrowed the roster of his favored institutions to 
three: Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, and Duke. During 
the spring of his senior year at St. John's, he made 
Duke his final selection. "The facilities and personnel 
at Duke were as good or better than anywhere else; and 
also, I had developed a lasting respect for Carl James, 
the assistant athletic director, who had visited me in 
Bethesda. You might say that Carl James had a great 
deal to do with my final decision." 

In the fall of 1962 Scotty packed his gear, said good- 
by to his mother, father, his six younger brothers and 
sisters, and came to Duke. The coach of the freshman 
football team, Bob Cox, describes Scotty's attitude 
toward football that September as "one that would put 
Norman Vincent Peale to shame." If the discovery that 


there were three other top-notch candidates for the 
freshman signal-calling job shook his positive thinking, 
no one was ever able to observe any change. Scotty 
threw, blocked, scrambled, and ran his way into the 
competition that fall with the same furor that has always 
marked his game. But that year he shared the quarter- 
backing duties. In spring practice, however, his talents 
earned him undisputed possession of the quarterback 
position on the second team of the following year's 
varsity squad. 

Senior Dave Uible was designated first team quarter- 
back by Coach Bill Murray to fill the vacancy created by 
the graduation of Gil Garner and Walt Rappold. He 
started the 1963 season against the Southern California 
Trojans; but during the second game of the season at 
Virginia, Dave was tackled hard in the backfield, and 
his knee was injured badly enough to require an opera- 
tion that forced him to the sidelines for the remainder 
of the year. Coach Murray called on the sophomore 
with all the confidence and the Alice-in-Wonderland 
style to finish the game. Duke won 30-8 that day, and 
Scotty Glacken began what everyone believed was to 
be a three year assault on the University's passing 
records. There is an element of cruel irony in the fact 
that Scotty had to give up his quarterbacking job for 
almost exactly the same reason he got his first op- 
portunity to take it over. 

After the Virginia game, the playground days and 
the years under the tutelage of Joe Gallagher began to 
pay off for Scotty, the team, and in an exhilarating 
fashion for the fans. That year, in his own inimitable 
style, he threw for 101 completions and 1,265 yards for 
a completion percentage of 50.2. His speed has always 
been considered average or above (6.1 in the 50-yard 
dash in full gear), but it was his quickness that made 
him a scrambler. Statistically his rushing average was 
never good, but this can be attributed to the times he 
had to "eat" the ball for one reason or another. 

At Homecoming in 1963 against Clemson, Scotty 
was at his scrambling best as the Blue Devils swapped 
touchdowns with the Tigers most of the afternoon before 
finally winning 35-30. Scotty passed for four touch- 
downs that day. If one mentions his record total of 
twelve scoring passes that sophomore year, Scotty has 
the highest praise for his receivers: "That season I had 
the likes of Stan Crisson (now with the Hamilton Tiger 
Cats in Canada), Billy Futrell, and Jay Wilkinson to 
throw to. I wonder if you couldn't simply shot-put the 
ball to them; they didn't seem to mind as long as it 
got there in some way, shape, or form." 

Scotty's sophomore year was a fruitful one, and the 
Blue Devils finished a difficult schedule with a 5-4-1 
record. However, statistics and records do not really 


indicate what it must have been like for a sophomore to 
step in and lead a team of veterans through the season. 
If anything, Scotty's infectious enthusiasm on every 
play earned him his teammates' respect and dzvoted 
determination. But he did have guidance both on and 
off the field in the person of Jay Wilkinson, who was 
well on his way to All-America honors that season. 
Scotty says that "Jay was an inspiration to play with as 
well as a good friend who would always take time to 
help when things were most difficult." 

With the experience gained in a year at the helm, 
Scotty stood poised and confident for his second year. 
Though he had another statistically good season, nothing 
seemed to go right, and the team finished with a 4-5-1 
record. The question of why the team faltered during 
the second half of the season is academic, but it must be 
said that the tough schedule could not be handled by a 
squad thinned by injuries that kept key players either out 
completely or functioning at reduced ability. An apoc- 
ryphal story has it that the injury problem became so 
critical that Coach Murray was doing some mid-season 
recruiting at The Woman's College. 

Scotty did have his biggest game against perennial 
powerhouse Georgia Tech that year. He threw for 
twenty-four completions (a school record) and 263 
yards (another school record); but as he aptly says, "it 
resulted in the fewest points per passing yard that I've 
ever seen." Duke lost 21-8. 

This season Scotty, now a poised veteran, led the 
Blue Devils to four straight victories. Against Clemson 
in its fifth outing, the team did everything but score 
enough points, losing 3-2. Then came the game with 
Illinois and the injury which ended Scotty's collegiate 
career. He spent the remainder of the season as a 

With few exceptions, Scotty called his own plays 
while he was quarterback. And whenever he got near 
the ball (which was often), there was certain to be 
excitement for the fan, the teammate and the be- 
leaguered coach. Actually, the fact that he was allowed 
to call his own game signifies the confidence his coaches 
and teammates had in his play selection in general 
and, more specifically, in some of his more imaginative 
yet unorthodox calls. Coach Murray has never had 
anything but praise for his star pupil; but the pupil may 
have given him gray hairs on some plays — such as the 
time he called a running play on fourth down and 
twenty yards to go. That was in 1963 against Georgia 
Tech when Duke was trailing late in the game. The 
Yellow Jackets were fooled, but not twenty yards worth. 

There have been times when Scotty's finesse has 
dumfounded a whole stadium. Against Pittsburgh this 
year the Blue Devils were threatening for their second 

Scotty Clacken in happier days this year against Pitt. 

touchdown somewhere around the Panther five-yard 
line. The preceding play had gone into the line, and 
Scotty noticed the linebackers were shifting too far into 
the holes. So he called a bootleg and danced virtually 
untouched around left end for the score. In this case 
the opposition was completely fooled, the Duke coaches 
were happily fooled, the national television audience 
missed the whole play (the cameraman followed the full- 
back into the line), and the other ten Duke players 
knew exactly what was happening. The latter was not 
always true. 

In the opening game of the season against Virginia, 
Scotty called an off-tackle play with the fullback carry- 
ing. Just as the ball was snapped, he realized that a 
linebacker had filled the hole that the play was being 
run to. Rather than take a chance on a loss that would 
halt the drive and prevent a score, he merely faked to the 
bewildered fullback and shuttled around the end by him- 
self for the touchdown. There is no record of the 
expression on the fullback's face as he groped empty- 
handed for the missing hole. 

In any final analysis, Scotty's major asset while he 
played at Duke was not his running, his scrambling, his 
signal calling, or his blocking. Though these factors all 
contributed greatly to his value, it was his passing 
ability, his arm, which made him such a valuable per- 
former. He was already the leading passer in Duke 
history when he was injured, and that history includes 
such greats as Billy Cox and Sonny Jurgenson. 

After graduation next June, Scotty wants to play 
professional football. He has the means: resourceful- 
ness, a strong arm, and the ability to play under 
pressure. He also has the record: in two and one-half 
seasons he completed 255 out of 479 passing attempts 
for a total of 3,270 yards and 24 touchdowns. His over- 
all completion percentage was 53.2. These assets will 
probably be recognized in the player draft this year, 
and Scotty may soon begin a new chapter in that same 
old book — Confessions of a Wayward Dancer: or How 
to Avoid the Blitz with 97 Handily Illustrated Waltz

The rest of the University will catch 
up with us one of these days." 
This is not an unusual remark for one 
to occasionally hear at the Medical 
Center. And there are times when one 
wonders if there might not be just a 
little bit of truth in the suggestion of 
laggardness on the part of the Uni- 
versity not related to the Medical 
Center. One occasion which prompted 
such a thought occurred recently when 
the Medical School Alumni Associa- 

tion staged an Alumni Weekend. It 
seemed by far the most successful such 
weekend held on campus during recent 
years, a memorable event for medical 
alumni and also for the chef at a 
local hotel. He was fired for not hav- 
ing taken enough steaks from the 
freezer for one of the dinners. 

The association introduced two in- 
novations into the annual reunion 
cycle. First, the weekend was held 
October 7-9 rather than at commence-

ment in June. It was felt that this 
scheduling would allow more individ- 
uals an opportunity to return to cam- 
pus for a weekend devoted exclusively 
to medical interests (except for the 
Duke-Pitt football game). Secondly, 
reunion intervals for all classes were 
reduced to five years. Thus this year's 
reunion classes were 1935, 1940, 1945, 
1950, 1955, and 1960. Alumni in all 
classes, however, were invited to cam- 
pus for the weekend. 

Friday morning and afternoon were 
devoted to alumni business and medi- 
cal subjects. At a business meeting of 
the association the following officers 
were elected: President Joe Milton 
Van Hoy '34, MD '38, of Charlotte, 
North Carolina; Vice President L. 
Everett Sawyer '35, MD '39, of Eliza- 
beth City, North Carolina; Secretary 
Talmage Peele '29, MD '34, of Dur- 
ham; and Treasurer George Baylin 
MD '36, of Durham. 

Both before and after the business 
meeting, alumni were able to attend 
several lectures on medical topics. The 
lecturers and subjects were: Dr. 
George Margolis, professor of pathol- 
ogy, Dartmouth Medical School, "In 
Pursuit of a Paraplegic Pub"; Dr. 
James L. Tullis, chairman, department 
of medicine, New England Deaconess 
Hospital, "Changing Concepts of 
Lymphoma"; Dr. George T. Harrell, 
dean, Hershey Medical Center, "Medi- 


cal Education"; Dr. Ivan Brown, pro- 
fessor of surgery, Duke, "Hyperbaria"; 
Dr. David H. Carver, assistant profes- 
sor of pediatrics and micro-biology and 
immunology, Albert Einstein College 
of Medicine, "Current Status of Anti- 
viral Substances"; and a panel discus- 
sion, "Renal Arteries, Functions and 
Disease," by three men from Duke, 
Dr. William DeMaria, professor of 
preventive medicine, Dr. George Bay- 
lin, professor of radiology, and Dr. 
Aaron Sanders, associate professor of 

The weekend, of course, was not 
devoted entirely to business and lec- 
tures. Each reunion class held a dinner 
party on Saturday evening in addition 
to attending a Friday night general 

And even though the chef forgot to 
take enough steaks out of the freezer 
for one of the dinners, everyone pres- 
ent was served. The food was a little 
late, perhaps, and not quite as warm as 
it might have been, but at least every- 
one ate.
